2 CEM, First in Microwave Peptide Synthesis In 2002, a CEM biochemist named Jonathan Collins presented his concept of a microwave-assisted peptide synthesis system to several colleagues. Collins concept went beyond the microwaveassisted coupling reactions that were first performed in the 1980s to encompass the deprotection step and create a process for microwave peptide synthesis. CEM designed, developed, and introduced the world s first microwave peptide synthesizer to the scientific community in Our patented process for microwave peptide synthesis is unique and encompasses steps for which microwave energy was not initially thought to be a viable alternative. Microwave energy is beneficial to the entire peptide synthesis process including the deprotecting, activating, and coupling phases. The CEM method utilizes the optimum application of energy to maximize the reaction and achieve greater purities and higher yields. Microwave peptide synthesis is a well-accepted technology that has been cited in over 300 publications. Microwave energy offers benefits for both the coupling and deprotection reactions during peptide synthesis. CEM is the only company that supplies peptide synthesizers that utilize microwave energy for the complete peptide synthesis process. In addition, CEM provides unparalleled applications assistance including phone support, , and online forums, as well as expert service from our factory-trained technicians. When you buy a CEM system, more than 30 years of scientific knowledge and experience stands behind it. The Microwave Advantage Utilizing microwave energy to drive peptide reactions is the first major breakthrough in peptide synthesis since Bruce Merrifield invented solid phase peptide synthesis in the 1960s. Though it is a well-known fact that heating chemical reactions makes them proceed faster, microwave energy brings more to peptide synthesis than a rapid change in temperature. Microwave energy directly couples at the molecular level with polar and ionic species. The movement of the molecules trying to align themselves with the electric field of the microwave causes motion, and thus, produces heat. However, it is this transfer of kinetic energy that makes all of the difference in microwave peptide synthesis. The constant realignment of the peptide chain in the microwave field accelerates the reaction and helps to keep it from aggregating, significantly improving results of the synthesis.

3 Partial Versus Complete Microwave Synthesis The synthesis of this peptide was carried out under Partial Microwave Synthesis conditions, where only the coupling reactions were performed using microwave irradiation, and under Complete Microwave Synthesis conditions, where both the coupling and deprotection reactions were performed using microwave energy. CEM s Complete Peptide Synthesis Process not only provides the peptide in a shorter amount of time, but also significantly increases the quality of the peptide. Unique Power Control Unlike the standard power control used by most laboratory microwave systems for organic chemistry, CEM s microwave system for peptide synthesis applications rely on a unique power control mode that allows bursts of microwave energy to be applied to the reaction mixture. This enables large amounts of energy to be introduced into the reaction without a significant increase in reaction temperature. Overcome Peptide Chain Aggregation One of the major challenges encountered during peptide synthesis is the aggregation of the growing peptide chain due to hydrogen bonding between peptide backbones. This aggregation can mask the N-terminus of the growing peptide chain preventing both deprotection and coupling reactions resulting in deletion sequences and truncation of the peptide. Due to its highly charged resonance structure, the peptide bond will readily absorb microwave energy inducing molecular motion within the peptide. This random motion due to microwave irradiation can overcome chain aggregation, allowing for free access to the N-terminus of the growing peptide chain and resulting in a significant increase in the peptide purity.

5 Flexibility Options for CEM Automatic Microwave Peptide Synthesis Systems One Shot Option UV Monitoring Option The Liberty and Liberty1 Systems can both be upgraded with the optional UV monitoring feature. This system monitors the waste stream from the deprotection reactions and automatically modifies the synthesis conditions in difficult regions of the peptide. The software features a user-defined feedback loop that will allow for double coupling, extended coupling times, and capping to be used in any combination during the coupling of difficult regions of the peptide. The UV monitoring feature provides many benefits including structural information about the peptide sequence, more efficient use of synthesis reagents, and improved peptide product. The One Shot Option is a software and hardware feature for both the Liberty and Liberty1 Systems that allows complete addition of an amino acid to the reaction vessel without the need for priming. Using this feature, volumes as low as 0.5 ml can be added, which is perfect for small scale syntheses and costly reagents. Bottle Setup Software UV monitoring data of a 26-mer peptide using feedback control to increase the number of deprotection cycles and modify the subsequent coupling cycles. The Bottle Setup Software option is a feature available for both the Liberty and Liberty1 Systems that allows the user to redefine any bottle position in the software to accommodate unusual chemistries. This option increases the flexibility of the system to include reagents that are not standard in the software s reagent library.
