The primary objective of this research involves the synthetic design of homologs of 3, 4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (dopa) in order to inhibit melanin formation, melanogenesis. These synthetic homologs are structured to have variations within their side chains and unto their aromatic ring when compared to the structure of dopa.
