The reaction of the removal of a benzyl protecting group in N-benzylazacrown ethers using ammonium formate as a hydrogen donor was studied. The optimal ratios of reagents and reaction temperature were determined, which allows to isolate the target products quickly and with high yield. It was shown that the debenzylation of N,N’-dibenzyl-diaza-18-crown-6 is sequential, which allowed us to isolate up to 40% of N-benzyldiaza-18-crown-6, which was used for the synthesis of asymmetrically substituted diazacrown ethers.
