Taylor, J. E., Williams, J. M. J. and Bull, S.D., 2012. N-acyl 1,5-diazabicyclo[4.3.0]non-5-ene (DBN) tetraphenylborate salts as O-acylating agents. Tetrahedron Letters, 53 (32), pp. 4074-4076.
Air-stable and crystalline N-acyl DBN tetraphenylborate salts have been shown to be effective O-acylating agents, reacting with both primary and secondary alcohols to give the corresponding esters in good yields. In the case of diols, the N-acyl DBN·BPh 4 salts have been shown to acylate regioselectively the primary alcohol functionality in the presence of a secondary alcohol. The DBN hydrotetraphenylborate side product can be readily removed by filtration, providing the ester products without the need for further purification.
