Various phosphonyl halides have been synthesized and utilized as protection groups for amino acids. The protection synthesis was performed via GAP (Group-Assisted Purification) procedure under convenient conditions without the use of column chromatography and recrystallization. The synthesis can be carried out on applicational scales with excellent yields (82% - 98%). The phosphonyl protection of amino acids would provide a new greener tool for GAP peptide synthesis.
