Liberty1 Automated single channel microwave peptide Synthesis

The Liberty1 System is fully automated and designed to synthesize a peptide using microwave irradiation to accelerate both the deprotection and coupling reactions. During the course of conventional peptide synthesis, the growing peptide chain can form aggregates with itself or neighboring chains, which results in low quality peptides. Due to its highly charged resonance structure, the peptide bond will readily absorb microwave energy inducing molecular motion within the peptide. Microwave energy can overcome chain aggregation by inducing random motion within the peptide, allowing for free access to the N-terminus of the growing peptide chain and resulting in a significant increase in the peptide purity.
