The Friedel-Crafts acylation is an important reaction in organic synthesis. Benzoylation of aromatic compounds with benzoic acid as acylating reagent using catalytic system of Gd(OTf)3/MSAA was investigated under microwave irradiation. Catalytic system of Gd(OTf)3/MSAA was found to be an efficient catalyst for FriedelCrafts benzoylation under mild conditions. In addition, Gd(OTf)3/MSAA is safe-to-handle, simple clean work-up and gives good yield.
