Trifluoroacetic acid cleavage and deprotection of resin-bound peptides following synthesis by Fmoc chemistry.
TLDR
The procedure described is suitable for the various linkers cleaved by TFA, whether producing C-terminal acids or amides, and the cleavage yield may be noticeably reduced due to a reaction between a Trp or Cys residue and the linker ion while still attached to the resin. Expand
