Modulation of photodeprotection by the sunscreen protocol. Academic Article uri icon


  • A protocol for the selective photoremoval of alcohol protecting groups modulated by the presence of auxiliary light absorbing molecules is presented. Thus, by this method, a single light source was used to selectively remove a specific protecting group in the presence of another chromophore with a lower molar absorption coefficient. The use of a molecular sunscreen, either internal or external, was found to be crucial to achieve high selectivities.
