Simple, efficient, and selective deprotection of phenolic methoxymethyl ethers using silica-supported sodium hydrogen sulfate as a heterogeneous catalyst.

Abstract

A simple and efficient method has been developed for chemoselective deprotection of phenolic methoxymethyl (MOM) ethers using silica-supported sodium hydrogen sulfate as a heterogeneous catalyst. The conversions occur at room temperature, and the yields of the deprotected phenols are excellent. The method is suitable for deprotection of phenolic MOM ethers of multifunctional bioactive natural products.
