Abstract

a-Aminoisobutyric acid (Aib), * a nonprotein amino acid first described synthetically, I has been found in diverse sources, ranging from peptides of microbial origin2s3 to the Murchison mete~r i te.E~a rly studies of the chemistry of Aib were directed towards the synthesis of model peptides containing this "sterically hindered" amino There have been several reports on the synthesis of Aib containing analogs of biologically active peptides.
