What is the rule of attendance in HBTU


HBTU (2-(1H-Benzotriazol-1-yl) -1,1,3,3-tetramethyluronium hexafluorophosphate) is a coupling reagent which is used in peptide synthesis to generate peptides.

The coupling of activated amino acids with peptides using HBTU as an auxiliary reagent proceeds with little racemization.[2] HBTU is a comparatively mild coupling reagent.[3] Alternative coupling reagents are e.g. B. HATU, HCTU,[4]TBTU, COMU,[5]TOMBU and COMBU.[6]

HBTU can exist in two forms, as the uronium salt (OForm) or as the preferred but less reactive iminium salt (N-Shape):[7]
