    A single-step continuous flow method has been developed that gives expedited access to complex heterocycles via an intramolecular photochemical cyclization. Herein we report the first examples of the photochemically-induced generation of thieno[3,2-c]quinolin-4(5H)-ones, 16 examples, and benzo[h]-1,6-naphthyridin-5(6H)-ones, 6 examples. Overall, the continuous flow method provides access to complex heterocycles in two steps from commercially available starting materials in good yields and with greater atom efficiency than traditional batch reactions.
