PyBroP

The halogenphosphonium coupling reagent PyBrOP was developed as an alternative to the BOP reagent, avoiding the release of the toxic HMPA in the activation step.

Applications

  • PyBrOP often gives better results than other phosphonium-HOBt reagents, for the coupling of N-methylated amino acids.
  • PyBrOP, as other phosphonium salts, cannot react with free amine function and therefore does not terminate the peptide growing as the aminium salts do, through the formation of guanidine derivatives.
