Z-Amino Acids

Z-amino acids, also called Cbz-amino acids or benzyloxycarbonyl amino acids, are primarily used in solution phase peptide synthesis.  The conditions to remove the Z group from Z-amino acids will also cleave an amino acid attached to polystyrene based resins.   Typically, Z-amino acids are deprotected by hydrogenolysis in solution phase.

Z-amino acids from AAPPTec are high purity and competitively priced.  Z-amino acids are also available in bulk quantities.  Please send and email to for a quotation or use the On-Line Quote Request.
