A simple and efficient protocol for the chemoselective mono-N-Boc protection of various structurally diverse amines with di-tert-butyl dicarbonate using magnetically recoverable γ-Fe2O3@SiO2 nanoparticles is reported. The catalyst can be easily recovered and recycled without a significant loss in the catalytic activity. No competitive side reactions, such as formation of isocyanate, urea, oxazolidinone, and N,N-di-Boc derivatives were obsereved.
