Solid-phase peptide synthesis is an indispensable method for constructing natural and modified peptide sequences. But the multistep process, even when automated, is extremely time-consuming for the relatively small amount of peptide generated. For example, a milligram-scale synthesis of a peptide 20 amino acids long can take 24 hours or longer to complete.
