A new method for the synthesis of cyclic head-to-side chain peptide libraries has been developed in which the key cyclization step involves reaction between a C-terminal ketone and an N-terminal hydroxylamine to form a macrocyclic oxime. This methodology efficiently delivers cyclic products that consist of mixtures of syn and anti isomers.
