Literature References

Monolithiation is thought to occur initially on the ring, but rearrangement then gives the more stable phenylthiomethyllithium: J. Org. Chem., 31, 4097 (1966); Tetrahedron Lett., 1961 (1977). Further metallation occurs at the ortho-position. See, e.g.: Tetrahedron, 46, 861 (1990). Demetallation and acylation is the basis of a route to 3-substituted benzo[b]thiophenes: Synthesis, 888 (1988):

Cation scavenger in the acidic deprotection of peptides; see, e.g.: Int. J. Pept. Prot. Res., 36, 255 (1990). See Appendix 6. The combination of the soft nucleophile thioanisole and the hard acid triflic acid has been used for the cleavage of methyl ethers, e.g. O-methyltyrosine, resistant to other methods: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 971 (1979). The same conditions have been used for the cleavage of Cbz, Boc, benzyl and 4-methoxybenzyl protecting groups in peptide synthesis: Chem. Pharm. Bull., 28, 1214 (1980); 29, 600 (1981); J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 101 (1980); see also: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 33, 1729 (1994).
