Abstract
Thiols can engage favorably with aromatic rings in S-H/π interactions, within abiological systems and within proteins. However, the underlying bases for S-H/π interactions are not well understood. The crystal structure of Boc-l-4-thiolphenylalanine tert-butyl ester revealed crystal organization centered on the interaction of the thiol S-H with the aromatic ring of an adjacent molecule, with a through-space Hthiol···Caromatic distance of 2.71 Å,...
