Oxidative alpha,omega-diyne coupling as an approach towards novel peptidic macrocycles.

  • August 6, 2015

The Glaser–Hay diyne coupling proved to be an efficient cyclisation approach towards diyne containing peptidic macrocycles. A variety of tetrapeptide-based macrocyclic 1,3-diynes were obtained from O-propargylated serine or tyrosine residues using Cu(OAc)2·H2O and NiCl2 under an O2-atmosphere. The effect of the linear 1,3-diyne on peptide conformations was studied by NMR and compared with a macrocycle bearing a saturated linker.
