Tips, tricks and insights about all things solid phase peptide synthesis – a blog by Biotage
Does amino acid concentration really matter during peptide synthesis?
When it comes to synthesizing a peptide, the first thing that comes to mind is the number of stoichiometric equivalents to use. Sometimes that number is as few as 1.5, sometimes it’s as high as 20!
But have you ever thought about the liquid volume that contain those molecules and how that might affect the success of your coupling reaction? In this post I will discuss the impact of amino acid concentration in the overall success of solid phase peptide synthesis.
