What is it about?
Polypeptides are synthesized by a condensation reaction between amino acids. We found that this important reaction is catalyzed by mineral oxide surfaces, even if these minerals do not have any specific catalytic sites.
Why is it important?
Our discovery can help to set up a viable and economically convenient route for the industrial production of short polypeptides.
