Bis(4-nitrophenyl) carbonate is used as a reagent for preparation of symmetrical and unsymmetrical urea and 4-nitrophenyl esters of N-protected amino acids. It acts as a peptide coupling reagent. It finds application as a reagent for the preparation of carbamate linked cytosines.
Reagent for peptide coupling in the presence of triethylamine in DMF, via the p-nitrophenyl active ester: Liebigs Ann. Chem., 655, 189 (1962); Helv. Chim. Acta, 46, 795 (1963). See Appendix 6.
Has also been used as a coupling reagent in the synthesis of carbamate linked cytosine oligomers: J. Org. Chem., 52, 4202 (1987), and of ureido sugars: Carbohydr. Res., 203, 302 (1990).
