Secondary structure of end group functionalized oligomeric-l-lysines: investigations of solvent and structure dependent helicity.

Canalp, M., et al. RCS Advances2019,9 (38), 21707-21714,DOI:

Narrow-dispersed, end group-telechelic, oligomeric-(l-lysine(carboxybenzyl (Z)/trifluoroacetyl (TFA)))ns (n = 3–33) were prepared as a model system for studying assembly and secondary structure formation. Fibril formation of oligomeric-(L-lysine(Z/TFA))ns with shorter chain lengths (n = 7 and n = 3) were chosen to investigate the effect of the number of repeating units’ role on the self-assembly of the oligomers in TFE.
