Amphiphilic α-helix mimetics based on a benzoylurea scaffold

Sam Thompson, Andrew D. Hamilton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The design and synthesis of amphiphilic benzoylurea α-helix mimetics is described. These conformationally constrained molecules allow for the correct angular and spatial projection of hydrophobic and hydrophilic groups and thus the reproduction of side-chains on both faces of an α-helix.
