A simple, inexpensive, environmentally friendly and efficient route for the acylation of a number of alcohols,
phenols and amines using pentafluorophenylammonium triflate (PFPAT) as a catalyst is described. PFPAT organocatalyst
is air-stable, cost-effective, easy to handle, and easily removed from the reaction mixtures.
