(matrix presented) A correlation between the conformation and chiral recognition characteristics of a series of modified amino acid complexes with β- and γ-cyclodextrins has been determined, using titration microcalorimetry and 1H NMR techniques. The enantiomeric discrimination (D or L) is found to be dependent on the adoption of one of two distinct conformations. With the magnitude of the chiral discrimination (KD/KL) arising from the guest's depth of penetration into the host's cavity.
