Abstract

his paper describes two approaches for the synthesis of a crossed alkene-bridged mimic of the thioether ring system of the nisin Z DE-fragment. The first approach comprised the stepwise total synthesis featuring a cross metathesis and a macrolactamization on a solid support followed by a ring-closing metathesis in solution. Via this route the title compound was obtained in an overall yield of 7% (85% on average for 16 reaction steps). In the second approach, the linear precursor peptide was subjected to ring-closing metathesis and the bicyclic peptide with the correct side chain connectivity pattern was obtained in yields up to 95%. The preferred formation of the bicyclic crossed alkene-bridged mimic of the DE-ring suggests a favorable pre-organization of the linear precursor peptide.
