N,N′-Diisopropylcarbodiimide is a carbodiimide used in peptide synthesis. As a liquid, it is easier to handle than the commonly used N,N′-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide, especially since its urea is soluble in most organic solvents, facilitating work-up. Users should be careful during handling since it is toxic and harmful to eyes.
