To explore further the practical uses of highly active manganese (Mn*), a variety of alcohols were treated with Mn*, and the resulting complexes were coupled with acid chlorides and/or acetic anhydride in the absence of any extra catalyst. The subsequent reactions took place smoothly under mild conditions, providing the corresponding O-acylation products in good to excellent isolated yields.
