    Among the forces responsible for shaping proteins, interactions between side chains of aromatic residues play an important role as they are involved in the secondary and the tertiary structures of proteins contributing to the formation of hydrophobic domains. The purpose of this paper is to document this interaction in two capped dipeptides modeling a segment of a protein chain having two consecutive Phe residues, Ac-Phe-Phe- NH2 and Ac-Phe-D-Phe-NH2. These two molecules have been investigated in the gas phase by IR/UV double resonance spectroscopy, and the assignment of the observed conformers has been done by comparison with quantum chemistry calculations. Both peptides are found to adopt a-turn type I conformation stabilized by an edge-to-face interaction between the two aromatic rings.
