A better way to convert an alcohol to a good leaving group is to convert it into a sulfonate ester ; a specifc example is a p -toluenesulFonate, usually just called a tosylate : Making Alcohols Leave: Part 3 - Using Sulfonates A tosylate is an excellent leaving group! Another example is a tri±uoromethanesulFonate, usually just called a triFate : OH OTs TsCl = S CH 3 Cl O O pyridine = N Reading : Section 7.4F 4
