Dont know why you Moffat oxidation isnt working.

With the Swern oxidation, are you keeping your reaction at -78? If not you
can get a mixture of side-products (thioacetals).
Secondly, are you adding your base in at the same time or separately? Add
base in after the initial reaction has taken place.

Regarding your reductive amination, I was, thanks to input from orglist,
converted from using NaCNBH3 to using Na(OAc)3BH as the reducing agent in
all my reductive amination reactions. The reactions appear to be more
reliable. No doubt there are follows of different reductive amination
methods out there, but for me, this is the most useful. give it a try. I
make it in situ by adding 3.5eq. of AcOH to NaBH4 in DMF and then use after
30mins of stirring at 0degC.

As for your purification, I noticed that you had an amine on your final
product. In my experience, amines and silica gel give poor resolution unless
you add TEA, say 1%. This can really increase your resolution. Try that. If
you dont need the protecting groups for your next stage, I would deprotect
and then clean up my product by reverse phase hplc.

Hope that something in here is of use.
