I based my activation logic on the HVZ reaction.Normal carboxylic acids require catalytic PBr3 but nitro-acids can be brominated directly.Also,its a well known fact that adding electron withdrawing groups increases the acidity.More acidity = more reactivity.
some peptide synthesis would be more successful.
peptide coupling reagents were proposed and disposed of way up this thread due to non-OTC concerns
