3,4-Dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) derivatives inspired by mussels have attracted broad interest in functional coatings of biomaterials and biomedical devices. Fmoc-DOPA(acetonide)-OH is the key precursor for solid-phase synthesis of adhesive mussel proteins and peptides. However, existing synthesis methods of Fmoc-DOPA(acetonide)-OH were tedious and costly which greatly hindered its practical application. Herein, a simple two-step strategy for preparing Fmoc-DOPA-(acetonide)-OH is reported, which is a simple and cost-effective synthesis method with broad application prospects.

Key words: mussel adhesion protein, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA), Fmoc-DOPA(acetonide)-OH, simple and efficient synthesis
