Infrared spectroscopy has long provided a means to estimate the secondary structure of proteins and peptides. In particular, the vibrational spectra of the amide I' band have been widely used for this purpose as the frequency positions of the amide I' bands are related to the presence of specific secondary structures. Here, we calculate the amide I' IR… CONTINUE READING
