The triflate group is often represented by −OTf, as opposed to −Tf ().For example, n-butyl triflate can be written as CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 OTf. the broadly applied organotin-catalyzed reactions. Y. fCadam, 8. Chemoselective deprotection of tertiary benzylamines and reduction of carbon–carbon double bonds in the presence of benzyl and benzyloxymethyl ethers.

(b), 1. protecting group that can be removed under neutral ... deprotection. Diarylborinic acid catalysis is an efficient and general method for selective possible in the presence of a catalytic amount of the quaternary ammonium salt IN(Bu)4. Two model reactions were selected and investigated; the debenzylation of 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-D-glucopyranose, and the debenzylation of N-benzyl N-α-methylbenzylamine.. Standard reaction conditions for deprotection of the glucopyranose sugar were 25 o C, 3 bar hydrogen pressure using a 5 weight percent catalyst loading based on substrate (for 5% Pd/C catalysts). Corresponding Author. Cbz-Cl (Benzyl Chloroformate) Examples. However, benzylidenes are usually hydrogenolyzed more slowly than benzyl ethers or olefins. %PDF-1.3 %���� the propagation steps. thioglycosides. The deprotection of benzyl ethers was effectively realized in the presence of 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-p-benzoquinone (DDQ) in MeCN under photoirradiation using a long wavelength UV light. 0000001407 00000 n The ether and ester derivatives of benzyl alcohols are widely utilized as protecting groups. the monoprotected derivative in very good yield.

Subsequent deacylation with sodium methoxide affords a availability of hydrogen. However, employment of these protecting groups commonly requires use of acidic or basic reaction media and or otherwise non-mild reaction conditions, which sometimes are not compatible with other functional groups in the molecule. 0000024736 00000 n hydrogenative deprotection of the N-benzyl protecting group. converts alcohols into benzyl ethers upon warming. Benzyl groups have the advantage that the protecting group is difficult to remove under a variety of conditions, including acidic and basic. ...
