Synthesis of a benzotriazole phosphoramidite for attachment of oligonucleotides to metal surfaces

Brown, R. and Smith, W.E. and Graham, D. (2001) Synthesis of a benzotriazole phosphoramidite for attachment of oligonucleotides to metal surfaces. Tetrahedron Letters, 42 (11). pp. 2197-2200. ISSN 0040-4039

Abstract

A method for the addition of a benzotriazole moiety to the 5'-terminus of an oligonucleotide via phosphoramidite chemistry has been developed. Use of a monomethoxytrityl protecting group on the benzotriazole allowed fast on-column detritylation purification by reverse-phase HPLC. Surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) of the modified oligonucleotides was obtained from silver colloid.
