The full conformational space of N-acetyl-L-tryptophan-N-methylamide was explored by ab initio MO computations. On the Ramachandran hypersurface of four independent variables E ¼ Eðf;c;x1;x2Þ; 36 conformers were located instead of the expected 34 ¼ 81 stable structures. The relative stabilities of the various conformers were analyzed in terms of sidechain? backbone interactions. A comparative study amongst theoretical calculations and experimental (NMR and X-ray) results was carried out.
