Abstract:


Peptides have numerous application possibilities in chemistry, biology, medicine, and pharmaceutical and materials sciences. Their traditional synthesis, however, usually poses major environmental problems. The goal of this review is to evaluate classic and contemporary methods and highlight efforts toward environmentally benign synthesis of peptides.

Keywords:

Peptide synthesis, green chemistry, aqueous medium, solid-phase peptide synthesis, microwave-assisted, enzymatic catalysis, chemical synthesis, peptide drugs, enzyme-catalyzed peptide, enzymatic peptide synthesis
