A simple spectrophotometric determination of solid supported amino groups.


PMID 3734326

Abstract

A simple spectrophotometric method for the quantitative determination of solid phase supported amino groups is described. The method involves reacting the solid support with an excess of activated acylating agent, N-succinimidyl-3-(2-pyridyldithio)propionate (SPDP) and an efficient acylation catalyst, 4-dimethylaminopyridine, and after thoroughly removing the unreacted SPDP, the solid support is reacted with an excess of dithiothreitol to quantitatively release pyridine-2-thione from the solid support to the solution. After an appropriate dilution, the released pyridine-2-thione which has a strong absorbance at 343 nm, is quantified by reading its absorbance in a spectrophotometer at 343 nm.
