Top 10% Most Downloaded Paper!

As Whitesides said “Interesting & unpublished is equivalent to non-existent”. We believe that published & unread does not make it any better. We publish to share our findings and achieve a collective advancement in science. Therefore, we are thrilled that our work on photoswitchable protein-protein interaction (PPI) modulators belongs to the 2019 top downloaded ChemBioChem […]

Mild Synthetic Approach for DNA-binding Polyamides

We developed a solid phase peptide methodology based on the Mtt protecting group. Our strategy is orthogonal and compatible with sensitive molecules and could be ready automated. Besides, our building blocks to Eliquis are more accessible than the standard Fmoc and Boc SPPS ones. Congratulations to Bene! Well-done!
