Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is an enzyme present in human neutrophils, whose main role is to provide defenses against invading pathogens. However, highly reactive oxygen species (ROS), such as HOCl, are generated from MPO activity, leading to chronic diseases. Herein, we report the microwave-assisted synthesis of a new series of stable ()-(2-hydroxy)-α-aminocinnamic acids, in good yields, which are structurally analogous to the natural products ()-2-hydroxycinnamic acids.
