<< < (3/5) > >>

I repeat also, this compound with the amino group as free base is not stable.

Why do you think so? Im fine with it being whatever kind of salt that allows subsequent amide bond formation or even deprotecting it in-situ before the coupling

I like to think of the proton as a poor man's protecting group.

Also the unsaturated product is a Michael addition substrate so a free amino group can add to the double bond. Its also a di ester so it can ringclose or polymerize via aminolysis.

As I wrote here, the free base is problematic but it depends on the timescale, it could be stable for short time.

So I did run the NMR experiment and after addition of TFA the double bond signal shifted towards lower ppm. Im not sure if its because of the N protonation or because of the deprotection is happening but after about hour or so, the double bond signals dissapeared completely. I dont have much idea whats going on but seems I need to do the deprotection quick.

Im running the same sequence with trityl and for some reason, the Phenylselenyl derivative is decomposing to something which is neither alkene nor selenoxide and for some reason, it does not get oxidized using same condition as the Pf derivative..
