Lysine8‐vasopressin was specifically labelled with tritium in the tyrosine2 and phenylalanine3 residues. The 3, 5‐dibromo‐tyrosine2 and 4‐chloro‐phenylalanine3 derivatives of the hormone were synthesized by solid phase peptide synthesis. The halogen containing peptides were catalytically reduced by tritium gas yielding preparations with high specific radioactivity and full biological activity as compared with reference material.
