Diarylethene (DAE) molecular photoswitches draw attention as building units in the preparation of diverse photoactive molecules. An interesting class of these molecules are photoactive peptides. A way to build DAE moiety into peptides/peptidomimetics is via DAE amino acids, an example of which has been demonstrated in bioactive cyclic peptides, wherein the DAE Fmoc-amino acid was prepared and used. Herein, the preparation of DAE Boc-amino acid is presented using a modified method of synthesis. This contribution to the DAE amino acid collection could be useful in the further enhancement of diversity in designing different routes to photoactive peptides.
