New Hydrogen Donor: A Facile Method for the Removal of Hydrogenolysable Protecting Groups in Peptide Synthesis.
Removal of some commonly used protecting groups in peptide synthesis by catalytic transfer hydrogenation employing hydrazinium monoformate and 10%Pd on carbon is described. This method is equally competitive with other methods in deblocking most of the commonly used protecting groups in peptide synthesis. tert-Butyl derived and base labile protecting groups were completely stable under these conditions. This is more effective than hydrazine or formic acid.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
