We report a microwave-assisted continuous-flow synthesis of di-ester derivatives. The method involves a combination of a milli-reactor operation and microwave heating as an energy source. This combined strategy allows one to have an accurate control over the reaction temperatures and substrate residence times. Moreover, it also employs a polymer-supported scandium triflate (PS-Sc(OTf)3) as an environmentally friendly catalyst.
