Abstract

Two chromatography-free and eco-friendly protocols have been developed to synthesize aryl tosylates and mesylates by the tosylation and mesylation of the corresponding hydroxyarenes, respectively. These protocols are superior to other known ones regarding the simplicity, reaction time and conditions, the range of substrates, yields, and environmental friendliness.
