Abstract

Erbium(iii) chloride is a powerful catalyst for the acylation of alcohols and phenols. The reaction works well for a large variety of simple and functionalized substrates by using different kinds of acidic anhydrides (Ac2O, (EtCO)2O, (PriCO)2O, (ButCO)2O, and (CF3CO)2), without isomerization of chiral centres. Moreover, the catalyst can be easily recycled and reused without significant loss of activity.
