9-Fluorenylmethanol acts as a N-protecting reagent, which is used in the synthesis of peptide. It is also used in the preparation of deoxynucleoside 9-fluorenemethyl phosphorodithioates. Further, it is used to prepare 9-(fluoromethyl)fluorene. In addition to this, it is involved in the electropolymerization with boron trifluoride diethyl etherate to yield low-potential electrodeposition of semiconducting poly(9-fluorenemethanol) film.
Reagent for protection of carboxyl groups as their 9-fluorenylmethyl (Fm) esters, which improve solubility of the molecule in organic solvents. Fm esters can be formed, e.g. by the DCC-DMAP method: Tetrahedron Lett., 24, 281 (1983), or by imidazole-catalyzed transesterification of active esters of N-protected amino acids: Int. J. Pept. Prot. Res., 21, 196 (1983). Cleavage is by hydrogenolysis. See Appendix 6.
Can also be used to protect phosphate groups in oligonucleotide synthesis: J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 803 (1973).
