Vector Laboratories is closed for the President’s Day on Monday, February 19th. We will be back in the office on Tuesday, February 20th.
We will respond to emails upon our return. Have a wonderful day.

DBCO Amine (CCT-A103)



DBCO Amine is a simple DBCO-containing building block used to derivatize carboxyl groups in the presence of activators (e.g. EDC, or DCC) or activated esters (e.g. NHS esters) with DBCO moiety through a stable amide bond.

DBCO reagents, also know as ADIBO or DIBAC are the most commonly used substrates for copper-free click reaction. DBCO compounds react with azide functionalized compounds or biomolecules without the need for a Cu(I) catalyst to result in a stable triazole linkage.
