The effect of a macrocyclic constraint on electron transfer in helical peptides: A step towards tunable molecular wires

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two helical peptides, one constrained by a covalent side-chain staple, exhibit vastly different electronic properties despite adopting essentially the same backbone conformation. High level calculations confirm that these differences are due to the additional backbone rigidity imparted by the macrocyclic constraint.
