Find us on Millipore Sigma

NPTC is a reagent developed in our lab to install a Tempoc protecting group on primary, secondary, and heterocyclic amines. First used in our synthesis of cycloclavine, Tempoc is orthogonal to both Boc and Cbz protecting groups, and deprotection can be performed under mild reductive conditions with in situ generated Cu(I) or by thermolysis. For more information, see the Millipore Sigma aka Sigma-Aldrich Product Page, and our OL paper.
