The syntheses of arginine-containing hydroxamates using various peptide coupling methods are described. Fmoc-Arg(NO2)-Cl prepared at low temperature did not undergo intramolecular δ-lactam formation and effectively provided desired hydroxamates (8 and 10) in good yields. Fmoc and N-nitro protecting groups can be easily removed. Therefore, this report provides a facile synthesis of arginine-containing peptidomimetic compounds.
