Two approaches to prepare amino acids with catalytically active organometallic side chains are presented. These methods are notable in that they provide access either free or N-protected compounds that are structurally analogous to naturally occurring amino acids. The N-protected organometallic amino acids are compatible with standard peptide coupling conditions and can be used to prepare catalytically active metallopeptides.
