Resumen:
The optimized geometries and relative energies obtained by four force field and two semi-empirical methods were compared with ab initio results computed for formyl-l-alaninamide. Not all methods yielded the same number of minimum energy conformers. Furthermore, while the optimized geometries of the conformers found were comparable, the computed relative energies varied substantially. Also, the force field calculations produced Ramachandran maps that did not even have the appearance of the ab initio Ramachandran map. Correlating the ab initio relative energies (DE) or free energy (DG) with the log of relative populations, ln(px=pgL ), led to linear relationships from which four conformers deviated; two of them (aL and «L) were overly destabilized and two of them (gL and gD) were over-stabilized. It is suggested that, after such deviations are corrected, a primary standard may be obtained that might be useful in further investigations related to force-field parametrization as well as protein folding
