ABSTRACT A new silyl-based reagent has been developed for "catch and release" immobilization, combining click chemistry with silyl protection. The traditional "all carbon" attachment to solid supports in a silyl type linker was substituted with a stable triazole, easily assembled using the CuAAC reaction. The methodology introduces a novel ethynyldiiospropylchlorosilane reagent (EDIPS-Cl) as a functionalized protecting group linker.

    ABSTRACT: Silyl protection/deprotection of alcohols continues to play an important role in organic synthesis. New silyl groups and methods for their introduction and removal are constantly being developed and offer chemists a wider range of options in their use. In recent years, though, silyl protecting groups have been given expanded roles beyond their traditional use of temporarily rendering alcohols inactive. Merging the silyl protection/deprotection of alcohols with such modern methodologies as asymmetric techniques, fluorous chemistry, and nanoscience has added additional value to these temporary components of synthetic intermediates. This review covers developments in the use of silyl protecting groups of alcohols reported in the period 2007 to the end of 2011.

    ABSTRACT: A synthesis of anthracycline aglycone derivatives is described. The key step utilizes a powerful domino carbopalladation approach and subsequent ring closure. During this process two of the four rings of the anthracycline scaffold are formed. Differently substituted carbohydrates and dialkyne chains serve as versatile and simple starting materials for the reaction sequence. Diverse building blocks lead to a variety of different products and a broad range of structural diversity.
