Acetic anhydride (0.09 mL, 0.98 mmol) and N,N-dimethylaminopyridine (2 mg, 0.02 mmol) were added to a stirred solution of the alcohol 1 (75 mg, 0.23 mmol) in freshly distilled triethylamine (1 mL) [1]. The reaction was mantained between 35-40 °C for 72 h and, then, water was added (10 mL) and the mixture extracted with Et2O (3×25 mL). The combined organic layers were washed with 2N HCl (25 mL) and brine (3×25 mL). The organic phase was dried over anhydrous Na2SO4 and the solvent evaporated under reduced pressure to yield a residue (77 mg) which was purified by flash chromatography on silica gel, using a 3:2 hexane/EtOAc mixture as eluent, to give the pure title compound 2 (55 mg, 0.15 mmol, 65%).
