D- or L-alanine: that is the question.

Abstract

The question is reopened, whether L- or D-alanine is more stable. Calculated parity-violating energy shifts for the 13 stable conformers of gaseous alanine (the picture shows the global minima) indicate that the stabilization of a certain enantiomer is strongly dependent on its conformation. Naturally occurring L-alanine is preferred for only seven of the… (More)
