Protecting groups for nucleosides used in synthesizing oligonucleotides

Abstract

Three protecting groups useful in syntheses involving nucleosides are described. These are β-benzoylpropionyl and benzoylformyl for OH groups of nucleosides and isobutyloxycarbonyl for NH2 of the cytosine ring. The preparation and properties of 3′-O- and 5′-O-(β-benzoylpropionyl)thymidine, 3′-O-benzoylformylthymidine, and N 6-isobutyloxycarbonyl-3′-O-(β-benzoylpropionyl) deoxycytidine are described.
