5b), their most prefered dihedral angles ([phi]) are 140[degrees] and 230[degrees], respectively, at which the 1,3-allylic strain with the C14-methyl group is minimized.
At the first step of calculation, the conformational analysis of PFBT compound was done by fixing dihedral angles (between donor and acceptor part) scanned with 20" steps between [theta] = 0[degrees] and [theta] = 180[degrees].
In this project a new nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) method will be developed in order to obtain structural constraints for two types of dihedral angles, currently undeterminable, that define the conformation around the phosphate group in RNA.
Generally, clutters, especially man-made objects, have dihedral angles structure, which is quite different from landmines.
The distribution of backbone dihedral angles ('Ramachandran plot') have often been used for such quality control, but without a firm statistical foundation.
Stereochemical evaluation of backbone Psi and Phi dihedral angles revealed that 78.
dihedral]); torsional energy, which is associated with the tendency of dihedral angles to have a certain n-fold symmetry and to have minimum energy,
We found a significant linear correlation between inhibitory potency and calculated solution dihedral angles (Figure 8, Table 3).
