    The solid-state phase transitions and intermediate structures of S-2-aminobutanoic acid (l-2-aminobutyric acid), S-2-aminopentanoic acid (l-norvaline), S-2-aminohexanoic acid (l-norleucine) and l-methionine between 100 and 470 K, identified by differential scanning calorimetry, have been characterized in a comprehensive single-crystal X-ray diffraction investigation. Unlike other enantiomeric amino acids investigated until now, this group featuring linear side chains displays up to five distinct phases. The multiple transitions between them involve a number of different processes: alteration of t he hydrogen-bond pattern, sliding of molecular bilayers, concerted side-chain rearrangements and abrupt as well as gradual modifications of the side-chain disorder. Ordering of l-norleucine upon cooling even proceeds via an incommensurately modulated structure.
