General description

Hexafluoroisopropanol (HFP) is generally used to denature the native state of proteins, and it also stabilizes the a-helical conformation in unfolded peptides and proteins like ß-lactoglobulin and melittin.

Application

Suitable for the derivatization of glutamic acid, homovanillic, iso-homovanillic and dihydroxyphenyl acetic acids and Υ-aminobutyric acid.

Other Notes

Reagent for hexafluoroisopropyl ester, N-pentafluoropropionyl, and trifluoroacetyl..
