The dipeptide Boc-L-Phe-D-Oxd-OBn spontaneously forms fibers consisting of parallel infinite linear chains arising from single intermolecular N-H…O=C hydrogen bonds, as demonstrated by IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and solid-state NMR. SEM observations show that the thickness and the width of the filamentous material are almost constant. This is the absolute borderline case of a parallel beta-sheet structure.

Abstract

The dipeptide Boc-L-Phe-D-Oxd-OBn spontaneously forms fibers consisting of parallel infinite linear chains arising from single intermolecular N-H…O=C hydrogen bonds, as demonstrated by IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and solid-state NMR. SEM observations show that the thickness and the width of the filamentous material are almost constant. This is the absolute borderline case of a parallel beta-sheet structure.
