Faster And Cleaner Peptide Synthesis
Solid-phase peptide synthesis is an indispensable method for constructing natural and modified peptide sequences. But the multistep process needed is time-consuming and generates a significant amount of chemical waste relative to the small amount of peptide generated. For example, a 100-mg synthesis of a peptide 20 amino acids long can take 24 hours to complete and produce several liters of waste. Jonathan M. Collins and coworkers at CEM Corp., a manufacturer of . . .
