The introduction of a cyclopropane ring into bioactive molecules significantly affects their potency or selectivity through augmented conformational restrictions. In particular two topics, strictly synthetic, will be dealt with in this framework. One concerns the development of a synthetic method for the preparation of aminopipecolic acids having in mind their use as scaffolds for the preparation of new ligands for the integrins. In particular, the synthesis of cyclopropanated aminopipecolic acids around which it will be possible to build some cyclopeptides. The second one deals with the synthesis of cyclopropanated derivatives of fragrances. As very often the allergenicity of the fragrances depends on the presence of unsaturations, the cyclopropanation of these unsaturations will also generate nonallergenic molecules, besides affecting the odour. In this context, the synthesis of some cyclopropanated fragrances structurally close to known fragrances will be realized,
