Hydroxymethyl resin is ideal for the solid phase immobilization of carboxylic acid. Less cross-linking is observed than that with Merrifield resin during the attachment of diacids [1]. Reaction with a suitable phosgene equivalent converts this resin to a support suitable for the immobilization of amines [2]. The carbamate linker of hydroxymethyl polystyrene can be used as an equivalent of Cbz, is stable to a wide range of acidic, basic and reductive conditions. Fisher indole synthesis and Pictet-Spengler cyclization on solid support, which require 70ÂșC in acetic acid with zinc chloride and 10% TFA in dichloromethane, respectively, were successfully carried out using this linker [3]. Methyl esters can be produced by transesterification with MeONa [4] or Ti(OEt)4/C2H5CO2Me [5]. Carboxamides are also accessible via Lewis acid catalyzed aminolysis [6]. Highly pure ketopiperazines can be produced by the resin-bound alpha-amino acids [7].
