An efficient chemoselective protocol is developed for the synthesis of (E)-cinnamic esters from substituted cinnamaldehydes or cinnamyl alcohols using a combination of DDQ and heterogeneous catalyst under microwave irradiation. The method showed remarkable selectivity for cinnamaldehydes over aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes, which is a novel finding. The results demonstrate that the developed protocol can be a useful synthetic tool for chemoselective esterification in total synthesis of complex organic compounds. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
