Incorporation of Heterocycles into Combinatorial Chemistry by Eugene V. Babaev

By Eugene V. Babaev

The writer has summarized a decade of training combinatorial chemistry into this well timed short. the cast part synthesis of unnatural heterocyclic alpha-amino acids is illustrated via useful examples ranging from the ABCs of peptide synthesis explored in bankruptcy one. bankruptcy is anxious with the forged part synthesis that is proven on numerous suggestions – BillBoard, tea-bag, and Lantern units, and verified on heterocyclic examples and protocols. within the 3rd bankruptcy the instruments for accelerating chemical synthesis – sturdy part and liquid section – are reviewed. the following the recommendations of parallel refluxing (including microwave and movement procedure) and parallel separation (filtration, centrifugation, evaporation, and chromatography) are defined. within the chapters four and five the writer is going directly to describe how the liquid part synthesis of heterocycles (reductive amination and Ugi response of heterocycles) is illustrated with using semi-automated protocols. ultimately, the layout of combinatorial libraries of heterocycles is reviewed together with the unique author’s findings.
