Tetrapeptide containing L-2-amino-8-protected hydroxydecanoic acid, L-N-O-methyltryptophan, L-isoleucine and D-pipecolinic acid was cyclized with pentafluorophenyl diphenylphosphinate. The cyclic tetrapeptide was deprotected and oxidized to apicidin [cyclo-(N-O-methyl-L-Trp-L-Ile-D-Pip-L-2-amino-8-oxodecanoyl)].
