Abstract

This unit attempts to provide a reasonably complete inventory of over 280 solid supports available to oligonucleotide chemists for preparation of natural and 3′‐modified oligonucleotides. Emphasis is placed on non‐nucleosidic solid supports. The relationship between the structural features of linkers and their behavior in oligonucleotide synthesis and deprotection is discussed wherever the relevant observations are available. Curr.
