Chemistry

can anybody think of a reaction that involves benzyl acetate?

formula is CH3COOCH2C6H5
i already have most of the synthesis's but i really need a reaction that involves this ester as a reactant NOT a product.

thanks :)

Why don't you just cleave the ester and make the corresponding acid and alcohol?

yah i could do that
but i already have a couple of reactions of that sort. i was looking for a reaction that involed the ester but is not related to its synthesis.
