B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level of theory is used to carry out a detailed gas phase conformational analysis of non-ionized (neutral) pyrrolysine molecule about its nine internal back-bone torsional angles. A total of 13 minima are detected from potential energy surface exploration corresponding to the nine internal back-bone torsional angles. These minima are then subjected to full geometry optimization and vibrational frequency calculations at B3LYP/6-31++G(d,p) level. Characteristic intramolecular hydrogen bonds present in each conformer, their relative energies, theoretically predicted vibrational spectra, rotational constants and dipole moments are systematically reported. Single point calculations are carried out at B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) and MP2/6-31++G(d,p) levels. Six types of intramolecular H-bonds, viz. O…H-O, N…H-O, O…H-N, N…H-N, O…H-C and N…H-C, are found to exist in the pyrrolysine conformers; all of which contribute to the stability of the conformers. The vibrational frequencies are found to shift invariably toward the lower side of frequency scale corresponding to the presence of intramolecular H-bond interactions in the conformers.
