Pd-mediated C-H bond functionalisation protocols have been designed and developed on tryptophan derivatives and tryptophan-containing peptides. The examination of different arylation reactions (three sets of different conditions A-C), all of which are notable for their low temperatures (≤40°C), allowed identification of unified and complementary synthetic approaches toward a series of functionalised tryptophan-containing products. Tryptophan-containing peptides demonstrated to be susceptible to aromatic oxidation were successfully and selectively modified through the application of diaryliodonium salts in good yields.
