Solvent-Free Peptide Synthesis
Stringing amino acids into a peptide typically takes a large amount of solvent. Chemists in France led by Frédéric Lamaty of the Institut des Biomolécules Max Mousseron, in Montpellier, have now developed the first solvent-free method for making a peptide bond by employing a ball-mill grinder commonly used to process chemicals in paints and pyrotechnics (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., DOI: 10.1002/anie.200903510). The device consists of a hollow cylinder containing multiple steel . . .
