Scrounger! A sustainable chemoselective protocol is presented for the stoichiometric acylation of alcohols and amines. This methodology utilises CaO as an effective acid scavenger. Acylation of primary alcohols is achieved chemoselectively over phenols or tertiary alcohols. Improved yields are obtained by using biocompatible 2-methyltetrahydrofuan instead of diethyl ether.
