Abstract
The methods of establishing gas-phase basicities and proton affinities are reviewed, particularly as applied to thermally labile and involat ile molecules. The literature on the basicities of amino acids is crit ically reviewed, and a consistent set of gasphase basicities for cr-am ino acids is recommended The problems associated with deriving proton affinities from these data are discussed The literature on the gas-pha se basicities of peptides is reviewed, and inconsistencies in the expe rimental results are discussed.
