This paper reports a simple method for the synthesis of α-acetoxyacetophenone derivatives from acetophenones using ZnO as a catalyst and iodobenzene diacetate as an oxidant. This transformation undergoes two processes: the oxidation of saturated sp3-C—H bond and the acetoxylation of C=C bond. The structures of products were confirmed by IR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR. In addition, a possible reaction mechanism was proposed.

Key words: iodobenzene diacetate, acetophenones, oxidation of saturated sp3-C—H bond, acetoxylation
