A peptide sequence involved in collagenase activity has been synthesized as well as its hydrophobic derivatives. The physicochemical properties of the three corresponding peptide analogues are described. Results indicate that decanoyl derivative is the most active as surface activity and monomolecular layer formation are concerned.
