Synthesis of Alkyl and Aryl Esters of N-Protected β-Homoamino Acids from N-Protected α-Aminodiazoketones
A simple and concomitant esterification method for the synthesis of methyl, ethyl, t-butyl, benzyl, and 9-fluorenylmethyl esters of Fmoc- / Boc- / Z-β-homoamino acids employing Fmoc- / Boc- / Z-α- aminodiazoketones by Wolff rearrangement is described. The method offers good yield with purity.

- 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.
