The energetic binders can contribute to the high energy and low signature containing azide group and is widely studied.
Presumably, obtained low molecular weights are due to the Staudinger reaction (Figure 6) [38, 39]; a side reaction between azide group and triphenylphosphine of Cu[([PPhe.sub.3]).sub.3]Br may lead to break of the 1 : 1 stoichiometric balance of the functional groups, which in turn is decisive for obtaining high-molecular-weight polymers in SGP.
This amino acid contains an azide group which is widely used in "click" reactions that only occur at that position in the protein.
This is the carbon with two single bonds connecting the phenyl group to the azide group. Since it is known that there are two hydrogen atoms at this point and therefore the area under the spike will be exactly 2, this data was implemented into the analysis and all other areas under each spike were determined using this data as the standard.
