protection of a reactive group

Temporary chemical transformation of a reactive group into a group that does not react under conditions where the non-protected group reacts.
For example, trimethylsilylation is a typical transformation used to protect reactive functional groups, such as hydroxy or amino groups, from their reaction with growing anionic species in anionic polymerization.
