2-Bromo-4-methoxy-5-(1-methylethoxy)benzeneacetic acid [1] (4.00 g, 13.2 mmol) and DMF (100 µL) were stirred in thionyl chloride (40 mL) for 3 h at ambient temperature. The mixture was concentrated in vacuo, and the residue was purified by kugelrohr distillation (100 °C/0.01 mbar) and triturated with dry petroleum ether (3 x 20 mL). Yield: yellow crystals (4.24 g, 99%); mp. 55 - 57 °C.
TLC: petroleum ether : EtOAc = 80 : 20, Rf = 0.6 [2].
