Photolabile protecting groups have proven their usefulness on many occasions. Their versions as linkers are however less attractive, as robustness and real orthogonality become critical issues. Safety-catch systems, where a preliminary activation phase is necessary, circumvent the problem of premature cleavage.

    Summary
    Photolabile protecting groups have proven their usefulness on many occasions. Their versions as linkers are however less attractive, as robustness and real orthogonality become critical issues. Safety-catch systems, where a preliminary activation phase is necessary, circumvent the problem of premature cleavage. In this work, we introduce a new safety-catch photolabile protecting group, whose cleavage requires the simultaneous presence of light and a chemical promoter.
