The 1,5-disubstituted tetrazole dipeptide analog Z-Trp(NinZ)ψ[CN4]Nle-OBzl was synthesized in good yield and high optical purity using a modified procedure of Zabrocki et al. This dipeptide analog can be selectively deprotected at either the N or the C terminal for further incorporation into peptides.
