The formation of disulfide bonds in separate chemical steps in a cystine peptide containing several cystine residues is exemplified by the synthesis of human insulin. The synthetic methods which made this approach feasible were 1) the thiol-induced fragmentation of sulfenyl thiocarbonate derivatives and 2) the conversion of S-trityl- and S-acetamidomethyl cysteine peptides to cystine peptides by oxidation with iodine.
