(Chemical Equation Presented) A new catalytic transesterification promoted by a tetranuclear zinc cluster was developed. The mild reaction conditions enabled the reactions of various functionalized substrates to proceed in good to high yield. A large-scale reaction under solvent-free conditions proceeded with a low E-factor value (0.66), indicating the high environmental and economical advantage of the present catalysis.
