I believe that the product of the oximinyl chloride and acetylene, the oxazole would be interesting

something sorta kinda like what you get by cyclizing eph with cyanogen bromide but wrapped around the other way

(forgive me, please as I am on vacation and away from my resources)

but generally cyclic str's (ifn they fit are better yes?)  bind better lower entropy and all that

but that is just rampant speculation tongue
