Hydrazine passes through two transition states, TS1 (phi = 0 degrees ) and TS2 (phi = 180 degrees ), in the course of internal rotation around its N-N bond. The origin of the corresponding rotational barriers in hydrazine has been extensively studied by experimental and theoretical methods. Here, we used natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis and energy(More)
Oligomers with alpha-aminooxy acids are reported to form very stable turn and helix structures, and they are supposed to be useful peptidomimetics for drug design. A recent report suggested that homochiral oxa-peptides form a strong eight-member-ring structure by a hydrogen bond between adjacent aminooxy-acid residues in a CDCl3 solution. In order to design(More)
The effect of thioamide substitution on the conformational stability of an azaglycine-containing peptide, For-AzaGly-NH2 (1), was investigated for the sake of finding possible applications by using ab initio and DFT methods. As model compounds, For-[psiCSNH]-AzaGly-NH2 (2), For-AzaGly-[psiCSNH]-NH2 (3), and For-[psiCSNH]-AzaGly-[psiCSNH]-NH2 (4) were used.(More)
