    Abstract

    Two helical peptides, one constrained by a covalent side-chain staple, exhibit vastly different electronic properties despite adopting essentially the same backbone conformation. High level calculations confirm that these differences are due to the additional backbone rigidity imparted by the macrocyclic constraint.
