The development of efficient methods for the preparation of unnatural amino acids has long been an important goal since their widely application in synthetic and medicinal chemistry. The asymmetric α-functionalization of nucleophilic metalated azomethine ylides, which could be in situ-generated from readily-available aldimine esters, has been recogonized as a powerful strategy to synthesize unnatural amino acids. Over the past 20 years, tranistion metal-catalyzed asymmetric construction of unnatural amino acids using azomethine ylides have been extensively studied. In this review, the progress on metallated azomethine ylides invovled aymmetric transformation for the synthesis of unnatural amino acids is summarized according to eletrophilic reagents.

Key words: azomethine ylide, asymmetric catalysis, unnatural α-amino acid
