2,2,2-Trifluoroethanol as a Tool to Control Nucleophilic Peptide Arylation

Abstract

The SNAr arylation of peptides with perfluoroaromatics provides a route by which to install a useful chemical handle that enables both 19F-NMR analysis and further chemical modification. However, chemo-selective arylation in peptides containing multiple nucleophilic side chains currently presents a challenge to the field. Herein, we demonstrate that employing 2,2,2-trifluoroethanol (TFE) as a solvent in peptide SNAr reactions significantly improves nucleophile-selectivity when compared to N,Nʹ-dimethylformamide (DMF).
