High impact information on triethylsilane

  • Removal of the phenylfluorenyl group was achieved with up to 3% TFA in dichloromethane in the presence of triethylsilane at 0 degrees C. These protecting-group techniques were successfully applied in the synthesis of differently lipidated H-Ras peptides [1].
  • The key reaction involves the tandem deoxygenation and cyclization of a triarylmethanol using a combination of triethylsilane and trifluoroacetic acid [2].
  • [reaction: see text] A triphenylmethyl (trityl) ether was reductively and instantaneously cleaved by triethylsilane in the presence of a catalytic amount of TES- (or TMS)-triflate [3].
