Peptides have diverse applications in medicine, and their synthesis by chemical methods is an important and rapidly growing area of research interest. The emphasis throughout this book is on the chemical principles behind the more important methods of peptide synthesis, and it provides acritical, concise, and up-to-date survey of the field. The book begins by covering the basic principles and the chemistry of peptide synthesis. Later chapters look at strategies and techniques used for synthesizing various types of peptide; they are illustrated with carefully selected case studies which highlight the many difficulties involved and theways in which they can be overcome. This paperback edition includes a fully updated literature guide, and will provide both beginning and established researchers with a valuable account of this important field.

Editorial Reviews

`The reprint of this excellent text published in 1991 contains a few corrections and several recent references. The excellent, well-documented selection of material and the lucid, concise, attractive presentation still apply to the reprint. Recommended to those requiring more detail than isavailable in textbooks of organic chemistry.'Aslib Book Guide, Vol. 50, No. 11, Nov 1994
