The effects of aqueous solvation on the conformational properties of l- and d-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline-3-carboxylic acid (Tic) were studied in a model dipeptide by means of AM1 and AM1-SM2 methods. The analysis of calculations predicts equivalent stability of g(−) and g(+) conformations in aqueous phase.
