The synthesis of polymer-supported N-Fmoc-dehydroalanine starting from S-protected cysteine via an oxidation/elimination strategy is described. Cycloaddition with a range of dienes afforded a range of conformationally constrained amino acids in moderate yields. The potential applications of this methodology to combinatorial libraries is discussed. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
