A simple, convenient and efficient p-toluenesulfonic acid catalyzed tandem reaction of aliphatic ketones with substituted anilines towards the synthesis of polysubstituted 1,2-dihydroquinolines has been developed. The ready availability of the catalyst, operational simplicity, cost effectiveness of the process and excellent regioselectivity mark some of the highlights of this methodology.
