The conformations of the dipeptide t-Boc-Pro-DAla-OH and the tripeptide t-Boc-Pro-DAla-Ala-OH have been determined in the crystalline state by X-ray diffraction and in solution by CD, n.m.r. and i.r. techniques. The unit cell of the dipeptide crystal contains two independent molecules connected by intermolecular hydrogen bonds. The urethane-proline peptide bond is in the cis orientation in both the molecular forms while the peptide bond between Pro and DAla is in the trans orientation. The… CONTINUE READING
