My professor was saying something about cycling, how it compacts the structure, and how it relates to solubility somehow. He used the example of cyclohexane vs. hexane, but I didn't catch what he said. And then he mentioned proline, which is a cyclic amino acid. Did he mean that cycling will make the molecule more soluble in water?
