Vibrational States of the Biopolymer Polyglycine II: Theory and Experiment

Vibrational States of the Biopolymer Polyglycine II: Theory and Experiment

B Fanconi et al. Science.

Abstract

The density of vibrational states, and hence the heat capacity, has been calculated for the parallel-chain hexagonal lattice of 3(1) helical polyglycine. The agreement with experimental results in the temperature range from 1 to 20 K, including an anomaly near 8 K, is the best obtained thus far for homopolypeptides.
