Chemoselective N-deacetylation under mild conditions
A mild and efficient chemoselective N-deacetylation using the Schwartz reagent at room temperature in rapid time is described. The mild and neutral conditions enable orthogonal N-deacetylation in the presence of some of the common protecting groups (viz. Boc, Fmoc, Cbz, Ts). The deprotection conditions did not induce any epimerization at the chiral amino centre.
