Solvent-free O-H insertion reactions in the presence of diazo carbonyl compounds were carried-out in very mild conditions. Unlike the traditional metal-catalysed version, employing rhodium acetate dimer, this method uses eco-friendly silica-supported HClO4 as the catalyst. Only 0.3 mol% of this BrOnsted acid catalyst, that can also be recycled several times, is necessary to guarantee very good yields (up to 97%) in the O-H insertion reactions. Reaction set-up is simple and permitted the preparation of forty-three -hydroxy and -alkoxy esters/ketones in just 1 h and at room temperature. (AU)
