Abstract

The extension of the deprotection procedure using HNO3 in CH2Cl2 to a number of appropriately selected N-BOC-masked amines and derivatives of natural amino acids was investigated. The method was found to work effectively with almost all tested substrates, with the exception of activated aromatic amines and heterocycles which underwent unavoidable faster oxidation. Alanine, phenylalanine, serine and lysine derivatives were efficiently deprotected, as well as dipeptide Ala-Phe, preserving the configuration of the substrates and without affecting copresent Z and ester functions, with a remarkable selectivity towards acid sensitive t-butyl esters. The obtained amino acids esters, isolated and characterized in the form of nitrates salts, proved to be suitable intermediates to be used in peptide synthesis. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
