Reaction information

*#Reaction file  
*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure  Diazomethane in dry ether [produced by addition of KOH (99.0 mg, 1.9 mmol) in 96% ethanol (4.0 mL) to Diazald® (107 mg, 0.50 mmol) in dry ether (14.0 mL)] was distilled into a flask containing acid 139 (40.0 mg, 0.13 mmol) in ether (1.00 mL) at −78 °C.  The reaction mixture was stirred at −78 °C for 20 mins followed by stirring at room temperature for 1 h to remove excess diazomethane.  The solvent was removed in vacuo to give a pale yellow oil (112 mg).  Purification by column chromatography (SiO2, hexane/Et2O 20:1) gave the title compound as a colourless oil (37.5 mg, 91%).
*Yield (%)  91
*Type of Yield Isolated product yield
