3,4-difluorophenyl acetic acid was mixed with 1M LiAlH 4 in THF (6.3 mL, 6.3 mmol) at 0°C and stirred for 24 hours. It was then heated to reflux for an hour and cooled down to room temperature. The mixture was treated with 2M HCl (40 mL) and EtOAc (40mL). The organic layer was extracted (2 x 20mL EtOAc) and concentrated in vacuo. The crude was obtained as a pale yellow oil and purified via column chromatography (Petroleum Ether 1:1 EtOAc) to yield clear liquid as a final product (0.3 g, 33 %)
