Steric Effects in Release of Amides from Linkers in Solid-Phase Synthesis. Molecular Mechanics Modeling of Key Step in Peptide and Combinatorial Chemistry


Acidolytic release of an amide from a solid support by C–N bond cleavage is an ubiquitous and crucial step in many solid-phase syntheses. We have used molecular modeling of a pseudo-equilibrium to explore substituent and steric effects in the release of peptides. The high acid-lability of the backbone amide linkage (BAL), which releases sec. amides… (More)
