Acetic anhydride (0.53 mL, 5.61 mmol) and N,N-dimethylaminopyridine (17 mg, 0.14 mmol) were added to a stirred solution of the alcohol 1 (442 mg, 1.31 mmol) in freshly distilled triethylamine (1.3 mL) [1]. The reaction was mantained between 35-40 °C for 72 h and, then, water was added (25 mL) and the mixture extracted with Et2O (3×40 mL). The combined organic layers were washed with 2N HCl (25 mL), saturated Na2CO3 (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 (539 mg) which was purified by flash chromatography on silica gel, using a 3:2 hexane/Et2O mixture as eluent, to give the pure title compound 2 (296 mg, 0.78 mmol, 60%).
