 The Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies team on the cover of Green Chemistry

Recent study realised by the Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies team of IBMM is on the cover of the last issue of the Green Chemistry journal. In this communication entitled “Environmentally benign peptide synthesis using liquid-assisted ball-milling: application to the synthesis of Leu-enkephalin” (Green Chem., 2013, 15, 1116), Julien Bonnamour, Thomas-Xavier Métro, Jean Martinez and Frédéric Lamaty showed that utilisation of the ball-milling technique allowed efficient peptide synthesis while avoiding usually employed toxic reagents and solvents. This innovative approach has been successfully applied to the total synthesis of the pentapeptide Leu-enkephalin.
