Metal-organic framework Zn2 (BDC)2 (DABCO) was employed as a reusable heterogeneous acidic catalyst in the acylation reaction of various benzaldehydes with acetic anhydride under microwave irradiation. The outstanding features of this efficient solvent-free method are short reaction time, ease of product separation, greatest yields, and the ability to reuse the catalyst several times.

Keywords: Zn2(BDC)2(DABCO), acetylation, benzaldehydes, heterogeneous catalyst.
