Guaiacol transprotection: replacement of the phenoxy isopropyl protecting function by acetyl

Williams, Craig; Mander, Lewis


A one-step method for the conversion of isopropyl protected guaiacols to the corresponding acetates is reported. Treating 6-substituted isopropyl protected guaiacols with trimethylsilyl trifluoromethanesulfonate in a mixture of acetic anhydride and acetonitrile affords 6-substituted guaiacol acetates in yields ranging from 35% to 99%.
