The Mono-Boc protection of p-xylylenediamine in the Africa flow microreactor
Bookmark and Share

Syrris Ltd

Microreactors offer rapid chemical optimisation coupled with minimal use of starting materials. The experiment described, vide infra, is part of a one day investigation into the synthesis optimisation of N-Boc-p-xylylenediamine.

The tert-butyloxycarbonyl group (Boc) is one of the most commonly used amine protecting groups. It is non-labile to catalytic hydrogenation, basic conditions and other nucleophiles. Deprotection is subsequently performed by acids like HCl and trifluoroacetic acid (TFA).

Diamines have application as a spacer group moiety and when used in asymmetric molecules it is often necessary to protect one of the amino groups.

The synthesis of mono-protected p-xylylenediamine involves the addition of (Boc)2O to thediamine, with the crude reaction mixture containing: mono-protected p-xylylenediamine, diprotected p-xylylenediamine, and unreacted p-xylylenediamine
