Automation of Solid-Phase Aromatic Foldamer Synthesis

  • Friday, November 18, 2022

The synthesis of long helical oligoamide foldamers composed of more than 20 aromatic monomers of 8-amino-2-quinoline carboxylic acid can now be routinely achieved by using an in lab-developed solid-phase foldamer synthesis (SPFS) methodology that relies on acid chloride activation.

The automation of the SPFS conditions is revolutionizing the production of high molecular weight aromatic oligoamides with very good yield and purity and faster production compared to the manual approach. That constitutes a critical milestone in the field of aromatic foldamer chemistry with many concrete applications such as the modulation of protein-protein interactions in competitive research programs.

Register for this webinar to learn more on aromatic oligoamide foldamer (AOF) chemistry, automated parallel solid-phase foldamer synthesis on the PurePep® Chorus synthesizer — a next-generation, multi-scale peptide synthesis platform — and other applications.

Dr. Céline Douat, PhD, Scientific Co-Worker, Chair of Chemical Biology (Group of Prof. Ivan Huc), Dept. of Pharmacy, University of Munich (LMU) - Germany

Dr. Céline Douat was trained as a Peptide Chemist at the University of Montpellier I, France, and received her PhD in drug science in 2001. After several post-doctoral positions where she, among other subjects, worked on catalytic peptide dendrimers with Prof. Jean-Louis Reymond at the University of Berne (Switzerland), she was appointed CNRS researcher at the University of Bordeaux (France) in 2006. She then refocused her research activity on peptidomimetic foldamers, specifically on helical oligoureas in the group of Dr. Gilles Guichard. In 2017 she moved to the department of pharmacy at the LMU (Munich, Germany) as the Chair of Chemical Biology with Prof. Ivan Huc, where she implemented the automation of aromatic foldamer solid-phase synthesis.
