The first vinyl acetate mediated organocatalytic transesterification of phenols: a step towards sustainability

Author affiliations

Abstract

The present report outlines our efforts toward a simple yet elegant protocol for O-acylation of a wide variety of phenols. This highly enabling and solventless method relies on vinyl acetate as an innocuous acyl donor and DABCO as an organocatalyst. Operational simplicity, excellent yields, higher and faster conversion rates without excess reagents, a simple workup and essentially no need of columns are some of the salient features of the reported protocol.
