The weak exchange interaction J3 between Cu(II) ions at 11.07 Å connected by a chemical path containing 11 diamagnetic atoms, including three H-bonds and having total length 18.34 Å, is evaluated using EPR in the copper complex of the dipeptide L-alanyl-L-phenylalanine. Its magnitude, |J3|/kB=1.8×10-3 K, is compared with values obtained in other model systems and in proteins.
