Abstract The lipophilicity (or hydrophobicity) of amino acids is an important property relevant for protein folding and therefore of great interest in protein engineering. For peptides or peptidomimetics of potential therapeutic interest, lipophilicity is related to absorption and distribution, and thus indirectly relates to their bioactivity. A rationalization of peptide lipophilicity requires basic knowledge of the lipophilicity of the constituting amino acids. In the present contribution we will review methods to measure or calculate the lipophilicities of amino acids, including unusual amino acids, and we will make a comparison between various lipophilicity scales.
