Photolabile protecting groups: Structure and reactivity

Academic Article


  • This Review focuses on the structure-reactivity relationship of three main classes of photolabile protecting groups (PPGs), that is, the 2-nitrobenzyl (NB) series of PPGs, carbonyl-based PPGs, and benzyl-based PPGs. Recent efforts in developing new PPGs for protection of carbonyl and hydroxy groups are also discussed. © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
