Abstract: Extensive epimerization was observed during the coupling of FmOC-L-Trp(Boc) and FmoC-L-Pro to D-Ual, a synthetic a-amino acid with a nucleobase in the side chain. This unnatural amino acid was used extensively in the construction of nucleic acids recognition libraries. Reaction protocols based on the use of DIC-HOAt-DIEA mixture without preactivation of the coupling mixture has been proven to suppress the epimerization reaction significantly.
