Peptides have diverse applications in medicine, and their synthesis by chemical methods is an important and rapidly growing area of research interest. The emphasis throughout this book is on the chemical principles behind the more important methods of peptide synthesis, and it provides a critical, concise, and up-to-date survey of the field. The book begins by covering the basic principles and the chemistry of peptide synthesis. Later chapters look at strategies and techniques used for synthesizing various types of peptide; they are illustrated with carefully selected case studies which highlight the many difficulties involved and the ways in which they can be overcome. This paperback edition includes a fully updated literature guide, and will provide both beginning and established researchers with a valuable account of this important field.
written with elegance and precision, by an expert in the area of peptide chemistry. Aimed at the research chemist, this book will be enjoyed by the expert while being invaluable to the less experienced. Pat Bailey in the Times Higher Education Supplement This is a good, plain, traditional book on the chemistry of peptide synthesis. ...will be especially valuable for new researchers who are contemplating or starting peptide synthesis ... I strongly recommend it. R. C. Sheppard in Chemistry in Britain an overview and appreciation of the field with a choice of language and literary skill which makes the text both intellectual and very pleasant to read ... highly commendable".
