Sustainability considerations in peptide chemistry
Only a fraction of the materials employed in the preparation of a typical active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) is incorporated into the final product. In particular, solvents are estimated to contribute 56 percent of the total material used to make an API, and this statistic is most acutely felt in the area of peptide synthesis. Increasing regulatory, financial and political pressures have led manufacturers to focus on the sustainability credentials of any synthetic procedure.
In this free webinar, the featured speaker will discuss current efforts in the peptide chemistry community towards pursuing more sustainable replacement solvents for peptide synthesis, as well as other considerations such as coupling chemistry.
