Synthesis of 5- and 6-HOAt has completed the full set of the four HOAt isomers derived from HOBt by insertion of a single nitrogen atom in the benzenoid nucleus. Comparison of the reactivity of all four isomers in model peptide coupling reactions has confirmed the unique character of the 7-isomer in promoting selectivity and maintaining configuration at the reactive carboxylic acid residue.
