When a 2-arylethylamine and a carboxylic acid are heated together with polyphosphoric acid, a 3,4-dihydroisoquinoline 108 is produced (Scheme 46).[‌89‌] In this one-pot procedure, FriedelCrafts acylation of the activated aromatic ring to give 107 is the first step. This was illustrated by the reaction of 2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(phenylsulfonyl)ethylamine with polyphosphoric acid and phenylacetic acid under controlled conditions, when only ring acylation occurred; closure to the 3,4-dihydroisoquinoline occurred, with loss of the N-substituent, on subsequent hydrolysis.
