Pyrrolinone-pyrrolidine oligomers as universal peptidomimetics. Academic Article uri icon


  • Peptidomimetics 1-3 were prepared from amino acid-derived tetramic acids 7 as the key starting materials. Calculations show that preferred conformations of 1 can align their side-chain vectors with amino acids in common secondary structures more effectively than conformations of 3. A good fit was found for a preferred conformation of 2 (an extended derivative of 1) with a sheet/-turn/sheet motif.
