Abstract

An efficient and selective acylation of alcohols and amines employing carboxylic acids as acylating agents is realized through the metal oxide containing activated carbon catalyst achieved by carbonization of organic ion-exchangers after incorporation of Fe3+-ions with exchangeable cations present in resin for the first time.
