Abstract

The temperature-dependent field ionization mass spectrometry method was applied to determine the interaction energy between 1-methyluracil and acrylamide, which mimics the side chains of the natural aminoacids Asparagine and Glutamine. The experimental enthalpy of formation of 1-methyluracil- acrylamide dimer derived from Vant-Hoff plots is - 40.6 ± 4.2 kJ mol-1. Two equilibrium geometry configurations of the 1-methyluracil-acrylamide dimer stabilized by intermolecular N-H···O H-bonds were found via quantum- chemical calculations at the DFT/B3LYP/6-31 + +G** and MP2/6-31 +G* levels of theory. The two methods yielded similar interaction energies for the two configurations, which are in good agreement with the experimental result.
