A general method is reported for the parallel solid-phase synthesis of hydroxypiperazine derivatives based on the oxidation-Cope elimination of polymer-bound phenethylamine linker with m-CPBA. The key intermediate of phenethylamine N-oxide resins was separable on solid-phase for subsequent β-elimination, from which the desired hydroxypiperazine products could be obtained in high purities and yields without any significant contamination at 90°C for 2 h. The utility of the methodology for solid-phase synthesis of general hydroxylamines was also investigated using the same linker. The progress of reactions could be monitored on polymer bound intermediates by ATR-FTIR spectroscopy on single bead. The desired products were obtained in good six-step overall yields upon cleavage from the resins and were characterized by LC/MS, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR spectroscopy.
