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..

1,1,1,3,3,3-Hexafluoroisopropanol is re-examined as an eluent for size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) of polyesters, nylons, and other polar polymers. It is shown that anomalous SEC behavior reported in previous literature can be eliminated by adding 0.01 M tetraethylammonium nitrate to the eluent....

A novel class of reagents, thioester isocyanides, have been prepared and applied in the synthesis of peptide macrocycles. The isocyanide part of the molecule is deployed in a multicomponent macrocyclization step. This step is followed by chemoselective peptide ligation at...

This study investigated the in vitro release of vancomycin, gentamicin, and lidocaine from novel electrospun sandwich-structured polylactide-polyglycolide (PLGA)/collagen nanofibrous membranes. For the electrospinning of biodegradable membranes, PLGA/collagen and PLGA/vancomycin/gentamicin/lidocaine were separately dissolved in 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoro-2-propanol (HFIP). They were then electrospun into...

The solvolysis of α-d-glucopyranosyl fluoride in hexafluoro-2-propanol gives two products, 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoropropan-2-yl α-d-glucopyranoside and 1,6-anhydro-β-D-glucopyranose. The ratio of these two products is essentially unchanged for reactions that are performed between 56 and 100 °C. The activation parameters for the solvolysis reaction...
