A three step synthesis of N-unsubstituted tetrazolo gamma- and delta-lactams involving a key Ugi-4CR is presented. The compounds, otherwise difficult to access, are conveniently synthesized in overall good yields by our route. PDB analysis of the N-unsubstituted gamma- and delta-lactam fragment reveals a strongly tri-directional hydrogen bond donor acceptor interaction with the amino acids of the binding sites.
