Abstract: Aryl-keto-containing α-amino acids are of great importance in organic chemistry and biochemistry. They are valuable intermediates for the construction of hydroxyl α-amino acids, nonproteinogenic α-amino acids, as well as other biofunctional components. Friedel-Crafts acylation is an effective method to prepare aryl-keto derivatives. In this review, we summarize the preparation of aryl-keto containing α-amino acids by Friedel-Crafts acylation using acidic α-amino acids as acyl-donors and Lewis acids or Brönsted acids as catalysts.
Keywords: aryl-keto α-amino acid; Friedel-Crafts acylation; Lewis acid; triflic acid aryl-keto α-amino acid; Friedel-Crafts acylation; Lewis acid; triflic acid
