We have demonstrated that peptides may be prepared in quantitative conversion in a micro reactor by reaction of the pentafluorophenyl (PFP) ester derivatives of protected amino acids. It was found that performing these reactions in a micro reactor operating under electrokinetic control resulted in an increase in reaction efficiency compared with the traditional batch method. By addition of an electrode to batch reactions, we propose that the enhancement in reaction rate is due to an… CONTINUE READING
