Metal ion complexes with HisGly: comparison with PhePhe and PheGly.

Gas-phase complexes of five metal ions with the dipeptide HisGly have been characterized by DFT computations and by infrared multiple photon dissociation spectroscopy (IRMPD) using the free electron laser FELIX. Fine agreement is found in all five cases between the predicted IR spectral features of the lowest energy structures and the observed IRMPD spectra… CONTINUE READING
