Carbodiimide Coupling Reagent Kit

Product overview:

The amide coupling kits are ideal tools for the optimization of amide bond formation. This enables to conveniently screen multiple reaction conditions simultaneously using pre-weighed reagents. We offer pre-selected arrays of reagents and salts or custom arrays depending on your needs.

Carbodiimide reagents kit:

A broadly applicable method for the formation of amide bonds uses carbodiimides such as DCC (dicyclohexylcarbodiimide) or DIC (diisopropylcarbodiimide) or EDC (N-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl)-N′-ethylcarbodiimide) for activation. We included ethyl (hydroxyimino)cyanoacetate) often used to avoid racemization.

Kit description:

The kit contains vials loaded with 10 µmol of coupling reagent (DCC, DIC and EDC) and a stirring bar and two vials containing ethyl (hydroxyimino)cyanoacetate). Reaction can be performed from 0.2 M in 50 µl  to 0.05 M in 200 µl at 1/1 ratio acid and coupling reagent.
