Twisted (crystal)sisters: The structures of the α/β-peptide 11/9-helix were determined by single-crystal X-ray crystallography. The racemic compounds adopt centrosymmetric crystal packing, and display fully folded 11/9-helical conformations. The helical parameters of the 11/9-helix are analogous to those of the 310-helix, despite different hydrogen-bonding types.
