A number of protected di- and tripeptides containing nitroarginine and proline residues, and also some derivatives of nitroarginine, have been synthesized and their IR spectra have been recorded in dilute chloroform solution. The results of the IR spectroscopy have been interpreted in the sense of the formation of an intermolecular hydrogen bond between the imino group of the side chain of nitroarginine and the carbonyl group of the following proline residue.
