This review focuses on the selective deprotection of silyl ethers in the presence of other like or unlike silyl ethers. Various examples are highlighted throughout the text, and these examples are compiled in tabular form at the end of the document (Tables 16-27). The abbreviations and structures for some of the more common silyl groups are given in Figure 1.
