A mild, efficient and eco-friendly protocol for the chemoselective protection of benzylalcohol and primary alcohols is developed in presence of ZnFe2O4@ZnO as the catalyst. Easy work-up, relatively short reaction times, excellent yields, low cost and reusability of the catalyst are the striking properties of this methodology, which can be considered to be one of the best and general routs for the protection of alcohols.
