Abstract

Silver acetate promotes the acetoxylation of alkyl halides under neutral reaction conditions. The reaction is applicable to primary and activated secondary alkyl halides, and 2,2-dibromoacetophenones for preparing the corresponding acetates in good yields. The presence of ester, amide, nitrile, hydroxy, and OTBDMS functions on the substrate is tolerated.
