Original synthesis of radiolabeling precursors for batch and on resin one-step/late-stage radiofluorination of peptides†
Radiolabeling of peptides with fluorine-18 is hurdled by their chemical sensitivity and complicated processes. Original triflyl-pyridine intermediates afforded ammonium precursors that were radiolabeled at low temperature. From that study, a generic tag has been designed to allow a simple one-step/late-stage radiolabelling of peptides. The strategy has been transposed to an automated “on-resin” radiolabelling.
