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.

Keywords: Alcohols, organocatalyst, pentafluorophenylammonium triflate, phenol, Amines, Solvent-Free, acylation, PFPAT, chemoselectivity, chemical transformations
