Abstract

Three series of compounds characterized by biphenylic structure were synthesized in order to develop new scaffolds able to induce b-sheet folding in the peptides. Microwave flash heating was used in order to shorten reaction times and to enhance the obtained yields. Simulated annealing molecular dynamics simulations demonstrated that some of the compounds were capable of adopting a 15-membered intramolecularly hydrogen-bonded conformation, which supports an antiparallel b-sheet structure.
