Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Selective protection of 5-aminobenzotriazole for controlled reaction at the primary amine

McKeown, D. and McHugh, C.J. and McCabe, A. and Smith, W.E. and Graham, D. (2002) Selective protection of 5-aminobenzotriazole for controlled reaction at the primary amine. Heterocycles, 57 (7). pp. 1227-1230. ISSN 0385-5414

Abstract

The selective protection of the triazole function of 5-aminobenzotriazole is reported. Two different protecting groups were used to prevent side reactions through the triazole amine acting as a leaving group when 5-aminobenzotriazole was used as a nucleophile. This allowed the addition of aminobenzotriazole to two target molecules to impart metal complexing properties to the new species.
