• Traceless Staudinger ligation reagent with borane protecting group.
• The borane group stabilizes the phosphine against oxidation and can be easily removed with mild basic or acidic conditions to yield the active phosphine.
• After reaction with an azide, the phosphine is eliminated in the presence of water to yield a native amide bond.
• Used in the synthesis of cyclic peptides.

Staudinger Ligation - Aldrich ChemFiles 2008, 8.1, 7.

The reaction between an azide and a phosphine forming an aza-ylide was discovered almost a century ago by Nobel Prize laureate Herrmann Staudinger. It has found widespread application in chemical syn...
