    By changing the constituent amino acid residues, peptide nanorings (PNRs) are expected to be applicable to molecular separation technology. In this paper, chiral recognition of guest amino acids by a host PNR is studied using ab initio calculations. We designed a theoretical host PNR consisting of four glycine and two D-asparagine residues that would work as a chiral selector even if the guest amino acid is protonated or deprotonated. We then considered the energy stability of the PNR complexes with the D and L bodies of guest amino acids. The PNR showed enhanced properties that could allow for chiral recognition of guest amino acids with polar and dissociable side chains at any solvent pH.
