The infrared spectrum of D2O from 2400 to 3000 cm−1 has been analysed at a resolution better than 0·02 cm−1. It was recorded at the Fourier transform spectrometer of the Kitt Peak National Observatory, Tucson. Ground state constants of the reduced Watson-Hamiltonian, ground state energies and transition for the

Atom-dipole interaction model has been used to calculate the molecular polarizabilities, refractive indices along the direction of principal polarizabilities of glycine and L-alanine and the molar optical rotation of L-alanine. The results of the calculation have been compared with experimentally observed data from Kerr effect and polarimetric measurements.

Ising model formalism developed for order-disorder transition in poly-peptides has been modified for the study of order-order transition in a macromolecular system. A two-state theory is developed and applied to poly-L-proline I and II. Various transition curves for different chain lengths are obtained as a function of solvent composition. Transition curves and crossing point for a solvent system are in excellent agreement with the experimental data on poly-L-proline.

Dipalmitoyllecithin (DPL) shows an order ← → disorder pressure transition which is neither of first order nor of second order but can be treated as a fractional order (3/2 order) transition. The Ising model formalism is adopted for the study of such a system. A suitable equilibrium constant is defined which generates a 3/2 order transition. Transition curves are obtained and compared with the experimental curves of Liu and Kay. Reverse transition curves are also obtained and the system exhibits hysteresis effect. An approximate expression connecting transition pressures at different temperatures is obtained and the calculated and the experimental values are in good agreement.

Poly(L-leucine) is one of the polyamino acids having a bulky hydrophobic side-chain. For want of full phonon dispersion curves and density-of-states on this biopolymer Roles
