Chiral Selectivity in the Achiral Amino Acid Glycine

Brunner, Henri ; Tsuno, Takashi ; Balázs, Gábor


A Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) search for the zwitterion of glycine, the only natural amino acid which does not have a chiral center at C-alpha, and its derivatives H3N-C alpha H-2-C'(O-cis)O-trans(H/R/M) gave 425 hits, 420 of which are chiral because of the psi conformation with regard to the central C'-C-alpha bond (psi = OcisC'C alpha N not equal 0 or 180 degrees). Chiral psi ...
