Enantiomers

Phenomenological manifestation of chiraliy: optical dichroism (rotation of the plane of polarized light).

- Cartesiancoordinates
- describeabsolute geometry of a system,
- versatilewith MD/minimizing energy,
- need a moleculargraphics program to visualize.

- describelocal geometry of an atom wrt a selectedreferenceframe,
- withsomeexperience, local geometry can be imaginedwithout a moleculargraphics software,
- mightcauseproblemswhendoing MD/minimizing energy (curvilinearspace).

Dihedral (torsional) angle

The C-O-H plane is rotated counterclockwise about the C-O bond from the H-C-O plane.

Electronic structure of peptide bond

Peptide bond: planarity

- The partially double character of the peptide bond results in
- planarity of peptide groups
- their relatively large dipole moment

Peptide group: cis-trans isomerization

Skan z wykresem energii

Because of peptide group planarity, main chain conformation is effectively defined by the f and y angles.
