03/05/12. Gold(III) chloride trihydrate (20.5 mg, 0.052 mmol, 1 mol%) and silver triflate (27.0 mg, 0.105 mmol, 2 mol%) were vigorously stirred in MeCN (5 mL) for 50 minutes. KAB23-1 (1.6 g, 5.205 mmol, 1 equiv.) was dissolved in MeCN (260 mL) before the sequential addition of acetyl chloride (0.4 mL, 5.2 mmol, 1 equiv.) and 2,6-lutidine (0.6 mL, 5.2 mmol, 1 equiv.) at rt. The KAB23-1 solution was added to the gold/silver mixture. The reaction mixture was left to stir at rt from 18:30.

All TLCs were eluted with 50% EtOAc/hexane, v/v and stained with KMnO4.

After 15 hours, the reaction mixture was concentrated under reduced pressure, before purification by silica gel column chromatography, eluting with 50-100% EtOAc/hexane, v/v.
