Does anyone know how to remove the acetate from this molecule, leaving a terminal olefin? It's not homework, I'm doing a past exam paper as revision and the final molecule has no OAc, but the first part of the question was about selective acetylation? 
Thanks so much! :)

- leaving a terminal olefin?
It's not a terminal olefin, but enol ester, so deprotection yields aldehyde.

Re: сказал, как в лужу пернул..

Не понял, при чём тут лужа. Енолы, что, сложные эфиры образовывать не могут?
