By reaction of aromatic K-carboxylates having nucleophilic N-atom in solid-liquid phasetransfer catalysis (PTC) conditions without added solvent (catalyst : tetraalkylammonium halide) with alkylating reagents, the corresponding esters are prepared. By a judicious choice of experimental conditions, the amounts of N-alkylated products can be lowered. From 2-pyrrolecarboxylic acid, the three isomers of pyridinecarboxylic acid and o-aminobenzoic acid, corresponding esters of ethyl, benzyl, n-octyl and n-cetyl, generally are obtained with good yields.
