acid as acylating agent


Kalshetti, Rupali G; Mandle, Ram D; Kamble, Sanjay P; Sudalai, Arumugam


P2O5 has been found to be a highly efficient and environmental friendly catalyst for the liquid-phase acylation of activated aromatic substrates giving aromatic ketones (45-93%) in a regioselective manner. Both aromatic and aliphatic carboxylic acids can be employed as acylating source. The process is particularly demonstrated at 100 g scale in the case of anisole and acetic acid to produce 4-methoxyacetophenone.
