Two photolabile multi-detachable alkoxybenzyl alcohol resins, 2-[4-(oxymethyl)phenoxy]propionyl-resin 4 and 4-[4-(oxymethyl)phenoxymethyl]-3-nitrobenzamidomethyl-resin 5 have been synthesized. Bpoc-peptide attached to resin 4 or 5 when treated with 50% trifluoroacetic acid provided the free, unprotected peptide, but on photolysis gave Bpoc-peptide p-hydroxybenzyl ester. Removal of the p-hydroxybenzyl ester in aqueous base or by oxidative work up gave a protected Bpoc-peptide suitable for fragment synthesis at its C-terminus. However, methylation of the ester to Bpoc-peptide p-methoxybenzyl ester followed by removal of the Bpoc-group gave a protected peptide p-methoxybenzyl ester suitable for fragment coupling at its N-terminus. The efficacies of these resins were evaluated in the syntheses of a model tetrapeptide and an octapeptide by using N alpha-Bpoc-, Fmoc- and Nps-amino acids. The use of 2-thiopyridine with pyridinium hydrochloride as a new and efficient thiolytic reagent for the deprotection of the Nps-group was studied.
