The aim of this article is to highlight the importance of the captodative effect in the amino acids and peptides. A few amino acids are mentioned and their crucial biological role is explained. Several dipeptides are cited and their free radical scavenging properties are examined. Also, the importance and utilisation of the captodative centres in amino acids in some photochemical reactions are reviewed.
