Interesting, and I agree that "atropisomer" does not describe this behavior, but how about planar chirality? This looks very much like the behavior you see in planar chiral cyclophanes, such as the chiral ligand Phanephos ( We should not introduce new terms if there are existing terms that could be made to cover the new observations.

We appreciate your comments, no problem at all. Indeed, the fact that this is a Peptide with many stereocenters makes things a bit more complicated….. regards Roderich
