The article describes the development of Buchwald-Hartwig amination of different bromoflavones with amino acid and peptide derivatives as nitrogen source giving unique structures. The previously observed racemization, which occurred during the synthesis of flavone-amino acid hybrids, was successfully prevented in most cases. The biological assays of these novel structures showed cytotoxic effects on different cancer cell lines.
