A protecting group is an organic group which functions as a temporary protection of a functional group against reactions with oxidizing agents and other reagents. The reaction only takes place at the desired (unprotected) site of the molecule.
For example, ancan be protected with a tert-butoxycarbonyl group (BOC group, drawn in red), thereby allowing the formation of a peptide bond only at other sites. After successful reaction, the BOC group can easily be removed, e.g. with trifluoroacetic acid.
