Friedel-Crafts acylation of aromatic compounds with acetic anhydride as acylating reagent was investigated in the presence of Lewis acid. Bismuth trifluoromethanesulfonate was found to be efficient catalyst for Friedel-Crafts acetylation under mild conditions. Bismuth triflate is safe-to-handle, simple and clean work-up, good yield and short reaction time
