A conformational study on N-acetyl-L-isoleucine-N-methylamide was carried out using ab initio (RHF/3-21G and RHF/6- 31G(d)) calculations. All backbone and side-chain conformations in this compound were explored. N-acethyl-L-isoleucine-Nmethylamide displayed a significant molecular flexibility. Also a different conformational behaviour was obtained for this amino acid residue in comparison with other amino acids possessing shorter apolar side-chains. These results can be attributed, at least in part, to the side-chain/backbone interactions, which are stabilizing the low-energy conformations in this molecule.
