( f ) The p -nitrophenyl ester prepared in part ( e ) is an active ester. The p -nitrophenyl group is a good leaving group and can be displaced by the amino nitrogen of valine ethyl ester to form a new peptide bond. ( g ) Hydrogenolysis of the Z-protected tetrapeptide ester formed in part ( f ) removes the Z protecting group. 27.32 Consider, for example, the reaction of hydrazine with a very simple dipeptide such as Gly-Ala. Hydrazine cleaves the peptide by nucleophilic attack on the carbonyl group of glycine. It is the C-terminal residue that is cleaved as the free amino acid and identi f ed in the hydrazinoly- sis of peptides.
