Fluorescence of a bis(cyclopeptide) in which two cyclohexapeptide moieties with alternating L-proline and 6-aminopicolinic acid subunits are attached to a 4,4'-bis(dimethylamino)biphenyl linker is quenched in 1:1 (v/v) water/methanol in the presence of sulfate. Of eight other anions tested, none produced a similar effect. This bis(cyclopeptide) allows the(More)
Using dynamic combinatorial disulfide chemistry we have developed a new generation of neutral synthetic receptors for anions, based on a macrobicyclic peptide structure. These receptors show an exceptional affinity and selectivity for sulfate ions in aqueous solution [log K(a) = 8.67 in 41 mol% (67 volume%) acetonitrile in water]. The high affinity depends(More)
The solution conformations of tetrameric and hexameric cyclopeptides containing alternating L-proline and 6-aminopicolinic acid subunits strongly depend on solvent polarity. Whereas in polar solvents, such as d6-DMSO, both peptides prefer on average symmetric conformations with converging NH groups, in less polar chloroform intramolecular hydrogen bonds to(More)
Cyclopeptides are an important class of substances in nature, and their physiological effects are frequently based on the tendency to form bioactive conformations. Therefore the investigation of their structure yields an understanding of their functionalities. Mass-selective combined IR/UV spectroscopy in molecular beam experiments represents an ideal tool(More)
