IRBM review article on Katritzky salts (as intermediates for the synthesis of unnatural amino acids, late-stage functionalization of peptides, and macrocyclization) is featured on the cover of the European Journal of Organic Chemistry
Innovative synthetic strategies giving access to a larger chemical space are of great importance to make the development of peptide therapeutics a faster and more efficient process. Katritzky salts, easily prepared from primary amines, offer peptide chemists a tool to achieve many chemical transformations in a straightforward manner. The IRBM peptide chemistry group is proud to share the publication of a review article in the European Journal of Organic Chemistry covering the application of Katritzky salts in the synthesis of unnatural amino acids, in the late-stage functionalization of peptides (from smaller dipeptides to more complex biomolecules), and as an alternative methodology to allow macrocyclization of linear peptides. The review also describes a more recent application where the viability of deaminative functionalization of Katritzky salts during solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS), significantly expands the scope of such precursors for the effective chemical exploration of peptides and biomolecules.
Our peptide chemistry team is excited to announce a new publication in the journal “Circulation”, which highlights the outcome of a highly successful drug discovery collaboration with Merck & co.’s world-class drug discovery group (Kenilworth, New Jersey).
Alessandro explains why building expert alliances as well as unique and ambitious drug discovery strategies across multiple drug modalities; from small molecules, peptides and monoclonal antibodies, is key to address unmet needs in oncology therapeutics.
