Non proteinogenic β-amino acids are very important compounds in medicinal and biological chemistry. They are also frequently encountered in natural and bioactive peptides, thus representing very valuable synthetic targets for organic chemists. The use of metathesis reactions for accessing functionalized β-amino acids has been recently covered in a Review by Loránd Kiss and co-workers from the University of Szeged (Hungary).
