Abstract

CeO2 catalyzed the esterification between an equivalent molar ratio of primary amides and alcohols under neutral conditions, which provides the first versatile reusable catalytic system for direct alcoholysis of amides to esters with wider scope and 67 times higher turnover number (TON) than previous catalytic systems.
