The conformational analyses of some aminoacids derivatives and related compounds, through NMR (H-1 and C-13) and infrared spectroscopies, and theoretical calculations is proposed. These calculations will employ the ab initio MP2 and the DFT wB97X-D methods including zero point energy corrections, which are available in Gaussian-97 and will give the geometries and energies for the most stable conformers in the isolated form. The IEFPCM solvation model will be used for the determination of several solvents on the conformation isomerism of the studied compounds. CO stretching frequencies and J(HX) (X is C and H) coupling constants calculations will be used together with experimental NMR and IR data, in several solvents, for the results analyses. The intramolecular interactions contributions from classical origen (steric and electrostatic) and quantum (hyperconjugation) for the conformational stability of the studied compounds will be performed. Moreover, topological analyses through the quantum theory of atoms in molecules (QTAIM), natural bond orbitals (NBO) and Non Covalent Interactions will also be made. The global analysis of the whole data set will allow the estimation which are the main effects for the studied compounds, and as a consequence for the macromolecules which may come from them. (AU)
