Many methods have been developed for attaching an alcohol functionality to a solid support. However, not all of these methods are used to obtain peptide alcohols. In this Minireview, we will discuss several of the most important methods and approaches for the synthesis of peptide alcohols and the attachment of hydroxy groups to a solid support for the synthesis of cyclic peptides. Some of the methods include the use of functionalized Wang resin and the attachment of an alcohol to an enol ether resin. We also discuss the use of the chlorotrityl resin, one of the most common linkers used to obtain peptide alcohols. In addition, we outline the recently developed resins with the Rink, Ramage and Sieber handles. The majority of these methods have been used to synthesize many important drugs, such as octreotide and the antibiotic peptaibols.
