A new method for protecting alcohols as tert-butyl ethers is reported. The reaction is performed in tert-butyl acetate in the presence of a catalytic amount of HClO4. The process is extremely efficient and primary and secondary alcohols as well as diols are protected under very mild conditions. Remarkably, tert-butyl acetate can be easily recovered after the workup of the reaction and recycled.
