The synthesis, characterization, and energetic properties of diazido heteroaromatic high-nitrogen C-N compound, 3,6-diazido-1,2,4,5-tetrazine (DiAT), are reported. Its normalized heat of formation (NDeltaHf), experimentally determined using an additive method, is shown to be the highest positive NDeltaHf compared to all other organic molecules. The(More)
The incporation of beta-amino acid residues into the strand segments of designed beta-hairpin leads to the formation of polar sheets, since in the case of beta-peptide strands, all adjacent carbonyl groups point in one direction and the amide groups orient in the opposite direction. The conformational analysis of two designed peptide hairpins composed of(More)
The first generation molecule of glutamic acid-based dendrons on a 1, 3,5-benzenetricarbonyl core leads to a cylindrical assembly as demonstrated by single crystal x-ray diffraction. The benzene pi-pi stack (A) is stabilized by vertical NH...O===C hydrogen bonding with each subunit participating in three intermolecular hydrogen bonds related by three-fold(More)
Two new cyclohexadepsipeptides have been isolated from the fungus Isaria. Fungal growth in solid media yielded hyphal strands from which peptide fractions were readily isolable by organic-solvent extraction. Two novel cyclodepsipeptides, isaridin A and isaridin B, have been isolated by reverse-phase HPLC, and characterized by ESI-MS and 1H-NMR. Single(More)
