review description
This review reports on the latest progress in the synthesis of fullerenyl amino acids and related derivatives, and categorises the molecules into functional types for different uses: these include directly attached fullerenyl amino acids, fullerenyl N- and C-capping amino acids, and those amino acids in which the [60]fullerene group is attached to the amino acid side chain. These first and last mentioned derivatives have the potential to be incorporated into non-terminal positions of peptides. The applications of these substrates, by integration into different biological and materials chemistry programs, are also highlighted. This journal is
