Title
Regioselective acylation of 2-methoxy naphthalene catalyzed by supported 12-phosphotungstic acid
Abstract

•Regioselective acylation of 2-methoxynaphtalene with acetic anhydride was studied.•Supported 12-phosphotungstic acid was employed as solid acid catalyst.•The catalyst shows excellent selectivity (>98%) at 67–68% conversion.•Unreacted starting material can be easily separated by crystallization from nonane.

12-Phosphotungstic acid supported on silica gel, zirconium sulfate, and a combination of silica gel and zirconium sulfate (50% w/w) were employed as solid acid catalysts for regioselective acylation of 2-methoxynaphtalene with acetic anhydride. 1-(6-Methoxynaphthalen-2-yl)ethanone (2,6-AMN), a commercially important intermediate for production of Naproxen, was obtained with excellent selectivity (>98%) at 67–68% conversion using 12-phosphotungstic acid supported on silica gel 20% (w/w) in refluxing tetrachloroethane. The unreacted starting material can be easily separated from the product by a simple crystallization from nonane.
