The Effects of Solvent and Added Bases on the Protection of Benzylamines with Carbon Dioxide
AbstractThe introduction and removal of protecting groups is ubiquitous in multi-step synthetic schemes. From a green chemistry standpoint, however, alternative strategies that employ in situ and reversible protection and deprotection sequences would be attractive. The reversible reactions of CO2 with amines could provide a possible vehicle for realizing this strategy. Herein, we present (1) the products of reaction of benzylamines with CO2 in a variety of solvents with and without the presence of basic additives; (2) new adducts associated with CO2 protected benzylamine in acetonitrile containing 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene (DBU); and (3) the intermolecular competitive acylation of benzylamine and benzyl alcohol and the intramolecular competitive acylation of (4-aminomethyl)phenyl) methanol with isopropenyl acetate in acetonitrile containing DBU in the absence and presence of CO2.
