Abstract: NMR chemical shifts of the amide proton of a supermolecule, an Nmethylacetamide hydrogen-bonded with a formamide, were calculated as functions of hydrogen-bond length RN…O and hydrogen-bond angles by FPT-GIAO method within the framework of HF/STO 6-31++G(d,p) ab initio MO method. The calculations explained reasonably the experimental data reported previously that the isotropic proton chemical shifts move downfield with a decrease in RN…O. Further, the behavior of proton chemical shift tensor components depending on the hydrogen-bond length and hydrogen-bond angle was discussed.
Keywords: NMR chemical shift/ ab initio MO/ hydrogen bond/ peptides/ polypeptides/ glycine residue
