Abstract

We investigated the ultrasonication-mediated effects on the Fmoc-based solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS). Our study culminated with the development of an ultrasound-assisted strategy (US-SPPS) that allowed for the synthesis of different biologically active peptides (up to 44-mer), with a remarkable savings of material and reaction time. Noteworthy, ultrasonic irradiation did not exacerbate the main side reactions and improved the synthesis of peptides endowed with "difficult sequences", placing the US-SPPS among the current high-efficient peptide synthetic strategies.
