An optically-active redox amino acid, L-ferrocenylalanine was synthesized. The amino acid was incorporated into polypeptides in the form of a single L-ferrocenylalanine unit or a L-ferrocenylalanyl-L-ferrocenylalanine unit. Those polypeptides showed reversible redox property on the cyclic voltammetry.
