Matters of length: Exclusive or predominant monoacylation of 1,n-linear diols took place in the presence of 1 when the chain length of linear diols was equal to or shorter than five carbon atoms. The chemoselectivity of acylation between 1,5-pentanediol (n=5) and 1,6-hexanediol (n=6) was 5.2, and that between 1,5-pentanediol and its monoacylate was 113.
