Tips, tricks and insights about all things solid phase peptide synthesis – a blog by Biotage
How do I choose my resin for peptide synthesis? Part 1
It used to be easy with only polystyrene based types, but nowadays there is a broad choice of types to choose from, including everything from the C-terminal functionality (Rink vs Wang) to the polymer from which the resin itself is synthesized.
All resins have one thing in common, and that’s the reactive site loading level. In this post, I will share my experiences with how this important factor impacts the success of peptide synthesis.
