What is it about?

A synthetic polymer is used for the acetylation of a variety of functional groups in including alcohols, phenols, thiols and amines under solvent-free and mild conditions. The heterogeneous catalyst was recycled several times without a significant loss of catalytic efficiency.

Why is it important?

The efficient and practical protection and deprotection of functional groups are crucial in the full synthesis of organic transformations.

Perspectives

I hope this work encourages chemists and researchers to find the potential and promising activity of this heterogeneous synthetic polymer as a catalyst in other organic reactions.
