Fluorine chemistry has represented a hot topic in drug research over the last decade. Because of their pharmaceutical potential, fluorine-containing amino acids and related derivatives have acquired high importance among medicinal chemists. Therefore their synthesis and the development of various synthetic methods for these types of molecular scaffolds have gained increasing interest in synthetic organic chemistry. The current review focuses on synthetic protocols towards fluorine-containing amino acid derivatives through late-stage fluorination with various nucleophilic reagents, describing the access of various open-chain and cyclic α-, β-, γ-amino acid derivatives.
