About this Book

This is the second of five books in the Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Synthesis series. 

Closing a gap in the literature, this is the only series to cover this important topic in organic and biochemistry. Drawing upon the combined expertise of the international "who's who" in amino acid research, these volumes represent a real benchmark for amino acid chemistry, providing a comprehensive discussion of the occurrence, uses and applications of amino acids and, by extension, their polymeric forms, peptides and proteins.

The practical value of each volume is heightened by the inclusion of experimental procedures.

 

The 5 volumes cover the following topics:

Volume 1: Origins and Synthesis of Amino Acids

Volume 2: Modified Amino Acids, Organocatalysis and Enzymes

Volume 3: Building Blocks, Catalysis and Coupling Chemistry

Volume 4: Protection Reactions, Medicinal Chemistry, Combinatorial Synthesis

Volume 5: Analysis and Function of Amino Acids and Peptides

 

Clearly structured in three main sections, this second volume in the series begins with the synthesis and chemistry of modified amino acids. The second part deals with the catalysis of reactions by amino acids, while the final section is devoted to enzymes, including proteases as catalysts, semisynthetic enzymes, catalysis by peptide-based enzyme models, substrate and protein recognition, as well as mammalian and insect peptide hormones.

 

Originally planned as a six volume series, Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry now completes with five volumes but remains comprehensive in both scope and coverage.
