Abstract: Two new groups of cholane-peptoid hybrid macrocycles were produced by implementing novel combinations of the MiB methodology. Steroid-based hybrid macrolactams including heterocycle and aryl moieties were obtained by utilizing cholanic dicarboxylic acids and diamines in a bidirectional double Ugi-Four-Component (Ugi-4CR) based macrocyclization protocol. Alternatively, N-substituted cyclocholamides were produced from a cholanic pseudo-amino acid by an Ugi-4CR-based cyclooligomerization approach. Both types of macrocycles are steroid-peptoid hybrid macrocycles containing exocyclic peptidic chains. These novel frameworks are a result of the use of bile acids bifunctionalized with carboxylic and amino functionalities as bifunctional building blocks of the Ugi-MiB approach.
