Trifluoroacetic acid catalyzed tetrahydro­pyranyla­tion of alcohols and phenols and direct conversion of THP ethers into acetates


An expedite and convenient procedure for tetrahydro­pyranylation of alcohols and phenols in dichloromethane and their depyranylation in methanol in the presence of trifluoroacetic acid at ambient temperature is developed. The reaction conditions are tolerable for a variety of functionalities. The direct conversion of tetrahydro­pyranyl ethers into their corresponding acetates under trifluoroacetic acid catalysis is also achieved.
