There is evidence in the literature to indicate that the two peaks observed in the NMR spectrum are most probably due to rotation about the N-N bond, altering the field on the amide carbonyl (47) (48) and thereby giving rise to two rotamer forms, as illustrated in the inset of Fig.
All the data collected indicates there are two conformers; the anti conformer is the more stable rotamer and the gauche conformer in the fluid states but only the gauche conformer in the poly-crystalline solid.

The density for Br2' is weaker than that for Br4', likely due to different rotamers of the second ring, which would maintain the position of Br4' but reposition Br2' in multiple orientations.
Two of these are dual-conformation peptide units; the remainder involves alternate rotamers of side chains either alone or in small clusters.
The relative energies of rotamers range between 0 to 16 kcal/mol.
Briefly, the lowest energy rotamers present a syn methylester group on an E side chain with a pseudo H-bond between the hydroxy H and the prenyl [pi] density (Fig.
Complete equilibrium geometries have been determined for both rotamers by ab initio calculations employing a variety of basis sets up to 6-311+G(2d,2p) at levels of restricted Hartree-Fock (RHF) and/or Moller Plesset (MP) to second order.
