Due to the pivotal role of tailor-made amino acids in modern medicinal chemistry research and drug design, the interest in the development of synthetic methodology for preparation of these compounds is at an all-time high. Currently, electrochemical approaches for synthesis of amino acids are being actively pursued to take the advantage of sustainability and green chemistry facets offered by the electrochemistry. This work presents the first specially focused, comprehensive treatment of the literature data related to synthesis of amino acids via electrochemical means. Aspects of practicality, benefits and current shortcoming of this approach are critically discussed.

Key words: electrochemical reactions, amino acids, radical reactions, asymmetric synthesis, Ni-complex
