New procedures have been developed for the synthesis of peptide alcohols, such as octreotide conjugates, fragment of gramicidin, and fragment of Trichorzianines in high yield using dihydropyran-2-carboxylic acid as a bifunctional linker to anchor Fmoc-threoninol(Bu), Fmoc-glycinol, and Fmoc-phenylalaninol onto amine-resins. The linker is stable during peptide elongation as evidenced by a high yield at each coupling step. The octreotide disulfide bonds were formed on-resin by incubating the elongated octreotide/resin with Tl(TFA)3/DMF at 0 °C for 1 hour. Tl(TFA)3/DMF is sufficiently mild that the protecting group and the linker remain intact and allow further the direct coupling of conjugates to octreotide using an autosynthesizer.
