A Convention for Peptoid Monomer Naming

Research output: Other contribution

6 Downloads (Pure)


In this document we describe a naming convention for peptoid monomers recently devised at the University of Strathclyde to address the lack of a consistent approach to this topic within the field. Our method is simplified and targeted at assisting those new to the research space, with a view to streamlining communication between those familiar with peptoids and collaborators in adjacent fields. To do this we have linked our convention to pre-existing amino acid nomenclature which is widely taught at undergraduate level in both chemistry and related disciplines.
