Abstract

A detailed $^{13}C-n.m.r.$ investigation has been carried out on the conformational changes in proline oligomers brought about by interaction with lithium and calcium perchlorates. Interaction of lithium and calcium salts with Piv-$(Pro)_n$-OMe, n = 2, 4 and 5 results in trans-cis isomerization. In the case of pentaproline, metal salts also give rise to other trans-isomers caused by the rotation about the $C^\alpha-C(=O)$ bond (\Psi, cis'). Calcium salts seem to stabilize cis'-isomers and produce effects somewhat different from those of lithium salts.
