Abstract

The cyclic dodecapeptides wewakazole and wewakazole B have been synthesized by a divergent strategy via a common tris-proline containing oxazole octapeptide and two separate bisoxazole containing tetrapeptide units, followed by peptide coupling and macrocyclization. The three oxazole amino acid fragments are readily accessible by rhodium(II)-catalysed amide N–H insertion of diazocarbonyl compounds, or by the cycloaddition of rhodium carbenoids with nitriles.
