One possibility to overcome this issue is the design of strategies in which the fragments are joined at glycine, which is achiral, or proline, which does not form oxazolones. Depending on the desired sequence, this is not always possible, and other fragment condensations should be carefully optimized. During a solid-phase synthesis, the oxazolone issue is less critical, as N -urethaneprotected amino acids only form oxazolones when they are strongly activated. In addition, they are quite resistant to deprotonation, so that racemization during Solid-Phase Peptide Synthesis (SPPS) remains typically low.

Owing to the large number of isolation steps, it is also clear that the ecological footprint of such a liquid-phase peptide process is considerable, as it corresponds to the footprint of a standard organic synthesis, with the corresponding number of chemical steps. It is also important to mention that the overall peptide manufacturing process can be rather complex and always includes other critical steps in addition to the elongation of the peptide chain. 1 Technologies currently applied in the manufacturing of the commercial products grouped according to the length of the peptide chain.
