The authors reported a fast and highly efficient intramolecular cyclization of peptides with native chemical ligation under homogeneous microfluidic conditions, in which the formation of highly active S-{2-[(2-sulfanylethyl)amino]ethyl} peptidyl thioesters is a key step.



This scale-independent microfluidic native chemical ligation proceeds rapidly, even for difficult junctions, and realizes an expedient preparation of bioactive macrocyclic peptides.
