Abstract

Ether-exchange reaction of alkyl aryl ethers with alcohols and thiols via the cleavage of the C(sp2)-O bond is described. Bi(OTf)3 was found to be a most effective catalyst, and etherification of fused-aromatic ethers proceeded efficiently. Monitoring of reactions revealed conceptually new transether-ification between two different ethers, which can be regarded as single-bond metathesis under the same reaction conditions.
