Silylations of the C-2 hydroxyl group of cyclodextrins were carried out using t-butyldimethylsilyl imidazole in the presence of 4A molecular sieves in N,N-dimethylformamide. A unique aspect of this silylation method is the temperature dependence of the regioselectivity; silylation at 0 °C regioselectively favored the C-6 position to afford mono-6-O-t-butyldimehylsilyl-cyclodextrins, whereas silylation at 140 °C exhibited high regioselectivity on the C-2 hydroxyl group.
