Libraries of rigid and conformationally restricted a-amino acids have good perspectives to obtain peptide models and peptidomimetics. Two mini-libraries of a-amino acids have been developed: one consisting of bicyclic proline analogues, another composed of potential glutamate receptor ligands containing spiro [3.3] heptane scaffold. Synthesis of some rigid amino acids using “chiral pool” terpenoids as starting compounds is also described.
