Abstract

The presence of folded solution conformations in the peptides Boc-Ala-(Aib-Ala)2-OMe, Boc-Val-(Aib-Val) 2-OMe, Boc-Ala-(Aib-Ala)3-OMe and Boc-Val-(Aib-Val)3-OMe has been established by 270MHz 1H NMR. Intramolecularly H-bonded NH groups have been identified using temperature and solvent dependence of NH chemical shifts and paramagnetic radical induced broadening of NH resonances. Both pentapeptides adopt 310 helical conformations possessing 3 intramolecular H-bonds in CDCl3 and (CD3)2SO. The heptapeptides favour helical structures with 5 H-bonds in CDCl3. In (CD3)2SO only 4 H-bonds are readily detected.
