A replacement of the acetic acid moiety by valeric acid within the 4-hydroxymethylphenoxyacetic acid (HMP) linker (Sheppard RC, Williams BJ. Acid-labile resin linkage agents for use in solid phase peptide synthesis. Int. J. Peptide Protein Res. 1982; 20: 451-454) significantly improved its performance in terms of loading capacity, yield and purity of the final products. The results indicated the spacer-linker combination and type of solid supports are important factors for solid-phase synthesis.
