N-Acylsulfonamide safety-catch linkers are versatile tools in solid-phase organic synthesis because of their stability. This stability necessitates linker activation prior to compound cleavage. Here, we demonstrate that the N-acylsulfonamide group can react with a pi-allyl palladium complex and that these mild and neutral conditions can be exploited for… CONTINUE READING
