An efficient and convenient method is developed for the remote C-H bond chalcogenation of 8-aminoquinoline scaffolds on the C5 position that is geometrically inaccessible. The protocol makes use of inexpensive CuBr2 as mediator and shows good tolerance toward numerous disulfides/diselenides and aliphatic amides, giving the corresponding products in good to excellent yield.
