Starting from natural asparagine, an efficient synthesis of the dibenzyl protected 6-amino-1,3-oxazepin-4-one (7) is reported. According to NMR based conformational studies, the lactam-bridged β-amino acid analog (7) adopts preferentially a twisted boat structure. The incorporation of the described molecular scaffold to give a constrained β-analog of the dopamine receptor modulating peptide Pro-Leu-Gly-NH2 is described as an application in the field of medicinal chemistry.
