Abstract

Solvent-free O-acetylation of alcohols (including secondary and tertiary alcohols) and phenols and S- acetylation of thiols by acetyl chloride with high product yields at room temperature in a very short reaction period can be easily accomplished using a small amount of solid catalyst obtained from the decomposition (at 600 A degrees C) of Ni-Fe-hydrotalcite. Both the reactions are carried out at room temperature under solvent-free conditions. The catalyst can be easily separated from the reaction mixture, simply by filtration and reused several times without a significant loss of its activity.
