The pharmaceutical industry’s interest in peptide therapeutics is increasing owing to their low toxicities, high specificities towards targeted proteins, and so on. The authors describe a stereoselective macrocyclization of peptides through click chemistry.



This DMAP-mediated intermolecular cyclization gives the desired cyclic peptides in moderate to high yields without the formation of linear oligopeptides through intramolecular reactions.
