The protected Gln-Phe hydroxyethylene dipeptide isostere 1 was synthesized as a precursor for preparation of potential inhibitors of Botulinum neurotoxin B metalloprotease. The method allows for the synthesis of additional hydroxyethylene dipeptide isosteres such as 2 with functionalized P1 side chains. The isosteres prepared were coupled with a dipeptide to produce protected pseudotetrapeptide derivatives.
