      Historically, solid phase peptide synthesis has been conducted at room temperature, demanding long reaction times and often double coupling to ensure a quality crude peptide product.  More recently however, different strategies have been identified to heat the reactor vial, increasing the overall reaction rate and potentially the crude purity of your peptide.

      In today’s post I will demonstrate that microwave heating can improve the crude purity of your desired peptide.
