Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pyoverdin D is an important siderophore that is used by the human pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa to import iron and gain a competitive advantage. This unique partially cyclic octapeptide bears four nonproteinogenic amino acids, including δN-formyl-δN-hydroxy-l-ornithine, and a catechol containing chiral chromophore. Here, we report the first total synthesis of pyoverdin D.
