Organic Chemistry Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry
Volume 3: Building Blocks, Catalysis and Coupling Chemistry
edited by Andrew B. Hughes

This third volume in the series presents an in depth account of recent developments in the (bio-)synthesis of amino acids and peptides.

Divided into two parts, the first section deals with amino acids as building blocks, including the generation of alpha-amino acids, beta-lactams, and heterocycles. The second section is devoted to the synthesis of peptides, with the focus on solid phase synthesis. However, solution phase peptide synthesis is covered as well, as are topics such as coupling reagents, chemical ligation, peptide purification and automation.
