CONFORMATIONAL ANALYSIS OF METAL COMPLEXES OF N-ACETYL ALANINE METHYL ESTER BY CNDO/2 METHOD

 

SIRIRAT KOKPOL, SUPOT HANNONGBUA AND THEPJUMNONG SANGSOONTORN

ABSTRACT: CNDO/2 calculations on Li(I)/Na(I)-N-acetylalanine methyl ester do not give satisfactory agreement with ab initio results. The ab initio method predicts the chelate conformation with simultaneous binding of metal ion to 09-0/0 to be the most stable conformation, and the binding energies to decrease in the order:

O9 - O10 > O8 - O10 > O10 > O9 > O8 > O8 - O9

whereas CNDO/2 calculations predict preferential binding sites as following:

O8 - O10 > O9 - O10 > O8 - O9> O8 > O10 > O9
