Copper-catalyzed highly efficient ester formation from carboxylic acids/esters and formates

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly efficient copper-catalyzed protocol for the synthesis of esters has been developed from formates. This protocol is applicable to reactions with either esters or acids as the substrates, and shows broad substrate scopes and high yields.
