Gangadhar J. Sanjayan and his team at the National Chemical Laboratory in Pune, India, write about the development of conformationally constrained unnatural aromatic amino acids in this communication that is the cover of OBC Issue 2.
The strategy described within the paper will be useful for the construction of oligomers displaying novel molecular architectures with unique conformations, distinct from those classically observed.
