4-Bromophenethyl alcohol was protected as the THP ether, followed by reaction with magnesium and selenium to give the corresponding diselenide. Ether deprotection provides a diselenide diol, which is attached to solid-phase resins. The polymer-bound selenide anion is then generated, and functions as a traceless linker for electrophiles such as alkyl halides.
