Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Chemical Reaction Repretatio A new class of nonpeptidic α-helix mlmetics derived from a-amino acids and featuring chlral backbones is described. NMR and circular dichroism spectroscopies, in combination with molecular modeling studies, provide compelling evidence that ollgooxopiperazlne dimers adopt stable conformations that reproduce the arrangement of i, i+4, and i+7 residues on an α-helix.
