The mannopeptimycins comprise a novel series of glycopeptide antibiotics that display activity against susceptible and resistant forms of gram-positive bacteria. Low isolated yields of these products from fermentation make the synthesis of easily accessible analogs attractive. A simplified hexapeptide is synthesized using a combination of solid-phase and solution-phase techniques.
