Herein, catalyst-free 3-component reactions of naphthols, aldehydes, and tetrahydroisoquinolines to synthesize 1,3-oxazines is reported. The reaction is performed in H2O in the presence of O2 as the sole oxidant at 100 °C, which proceeds through the formation of 1-aminoalkyl-2-naphthols followed by selective α-C–H functionalization of tert-amine.

The representative procedure for the synthesis of 4a is as follows: 2-naphthol (1a, 144 mg, 1 mmol), benzaldehyde (2a, 106 mg, 1 mmol), tetrahydroisoquinoline (3, 133 mg, 1 mmol) and water (1.5 mL) were added in a round-bottom flask equipped with a magnetic stirring bar and a reflux condenser. The whole apparatus was efficiently flushed with oxygen gas and then connected to a balloon filled with oxygen. After vigorous stirring at 100 oC for 12 h, water was removed under vacuum and purified the reaction mixture by column chromatography (100-200 mesh silica gel, hexane-ethyl acetate) to obtain the product 4a as white solid. The other 1,3-oxazines were synthesized and purified by following the procedure described above
