    Abstract

    It represents the synthesis, characterization, conformational analyses and self-association of designed peptides using proteinus and/or synthetic amino acids. Chapter 1 describes the objective of this thesis. Chapter 2 includes the detailed description of synthetic procedures, experimental strategies and reagents that are employed to perform the whole work, embodied in this thesis. Chapter 3 describes the synthesis and conformational analysis of a dipeptide bearing sequence similarity with Aβ18-19 (the fragment 18-19 of the amyloid β-peptide A42). The dipeptide adopts an extended backbone conformation. But, the peptide finally forms a supramolecular β-sheet structure at higher order assembly. The structures of these reported peptides in the solid state were determined by FTIR and morphologies of these peptides were studied by atomic force microscopy.
