Thallium(III) trinitrate oxidation of the tripeptide, which was a synthetic precursor of the 17-membered isodityrosine natural product, eurypamide, was investigated to give the desired cyclized compound in 96% yield at best. In addition, the thallium(III) species generated by electrochemical oxidation of thallium(I) successfully produced the target compounds.
