The investigation of cycloisomerization cascades of alkynyl imines towards pyrroles unexpectedly led to the development of chemodivergent routes towards quinolines and fused pyrrolines. It was found that, depending on the nature of the nitrogen substituent and choice of reagents, up to three different heterocyclic cores can be accessed from a common structural precursor.
