The court held that since "one cannot chose from the unknown" and "one having no knowledge of this acid could hardly find it obvious to make any cephem using this acid as an acylating agent, much less the particular cephem," the process was nonobvious.
Vinyl ester was used as the acylating agent for transesterification because it offers an effective solution to overcome equilibrium.
The acylation process was carried out without solvent, involving only the addition of two molar-equivalent amounts of the acylating agent to a solution of 1 in pyridine (1 : 2) at -5[degrees]C, followed by stirring for 10 h at 25[degrees]C.

Due to the weak nucleophilicity of the amino group of the 2-aminothiazole and its 4-phenyl derivative by participation in resonance with the pi- system, condensation with activated acylating reagents such as chloroformates, acid chlorides and acid anhydrides provided a good strategy to prepare a number of thiazole derivatives via nucleophilic substitution reactions.
Furthermore, the aromatic amide (+)-tembamide (5), and the phenylpropanoid (+)-ailanthoidiol (6) were esterified with different acylating reagents to afford seven alkanoyi/aroyl esters (7-13).
He begins with the reagents and processes: alkylating agents, acylating agents, nitration and nitrosylation, oxidation, and modifying proteins with reducing agents.
The role of NBS is not clear in the acetylation reaction but a plausible explanation is that NBS might act as a source for Br+ which in turn activates the carbonyl groups of acetic anhydride to produce the highly reactive acylating agent (CH3-CO-N-OCCH2CH2CO-).
Like simple alcohol, the hydroxyl groups of cellulose can be esterified by reactions with acids or other acylating agents.
The most commonly used initiators for cationic polymerization are protic acids, Lewis acids, stable organic salts and alkylating or acylating covalent compounds.
