Abstract

Sulfuryl fluoride (SO2F2) mediates a dehydrative coupling of carboxylic acids with alcohols at room temperature and proceed with high efficiency. This method offers broad substrate scope, mild conditions, excellent functional group compatibility and affords esters in high yields, even on gram scale.
