Homework Help: Hydrolysis chemsketch

  1. Oct 15, 2008 #1
    I drew this on chemsketch - http://img413.imageshack.us/my.php?image=peptide1kn3.jpg

    I am trying to figure out what the results would be... there are 3 peptide bonds here... where would the reaction take place? the first, second or third peptide?

    My guess would be that I could do the reaction on any... is that right?

    Re: hydrolysis

    I'd say the HN=C b/c N is less electronegative than O.
