1. Two types of conformational states differing in the nature of their spectra in the far IR region have been found for a number of methylamides of N-acetyl-L-amino acids (in the solid state).

2. The changes in the IR spectra in the far infrared with an increase in the length of the peptide chain and with a change in the sequence and configuration of the amino-acid residues have been discussed.
