Structurally diverse novel glycopeptoids were synthesized which can be attached to biologically important peptides by click reaction to improve their potential to be used in medicinal chemistry. Triazole-linked αβ-hydrid glycopeptoids were synthesized that mimic the conserved linkage region of N-linked glycoproteins in eukaryotes. The amide bonds were replaced with triazole rings, and αβ-hybrid peptoids were introduced as the backbone modification in peptidomimetics. In addition to their facile synthesis, these modifications have the possibility of introducing otherwise impossible conformations in the peptide backbone.
