Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A synthetic analogue of the right-hand ring of vancomycin, the region in the antibiotic which contains the pocket for binding to the terminal carboxylate of D-Ala-D-Ala containing peptides, has been prepared and shows structural and spectroscopic similarity to the natural molecule.
