Theoretical calculations on different xanthene derivatives and related structures were performed and as a result conclusions could be drawn for the acid‐lability of substituted xanthenes. (9‐Hydroxyxanthene‐3‐oxy)acetic‐ and valeric acid (6a and 6b) were selected, synthesized in a six‐step route, and 6b was tested for its applicabiliy as a handle for solid phase synthesis of peptides.
