For N-acetyl-L-glutamic acid hexamer α,γ-benzyl ester (A6Z), synthesized by a stepwise procedure, the shape and size of an aggregate formed in dioxane has been investigated in connection with the super-secondary structure of oligopeptides by the SANS method. The results are summarized as follows. An A6Z aggregate in dioxane has a cylinder-like shape having a radius of 13 Å and a height of 135 Å, and the aggregation number is 36. Probably, the cylinder aggregate has a stacking structure of the A6Z β-sheets.
