Polyamines, such as spermine (1), thermospermine (2) and norspermine (3), are widely distributed in nature, and have multiple biological activities. In addition, many of their conjugates have potential for pharmacological use. Here, we present a solid-phase synthesis using our nitrobenzenesulfonyl (Ns) strategy, which can provide 1, 2 and 3 on a gram scale. This approach should be suitable for facile construction of a diverse library of polyamines.
