Abstract

Ionic liquids based on 1,3-dialkylimidazolinium methanesulfonate have been used as efficient reusable reaction media in the esterification of several carboxylic acids with alkyl halides catalyzed by fluoride ions. The method has wide applicability, and it is mild and green; it is useful for the protection of acids, via ester formation, for alkali labile molecules. © 2003 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
