Microsolvation of a polyalanine chain in fully extended structure and polyproline II conformation is studied using density functional theory. Infinitely long systems are investigated to form infinite networks of hydrogen bonds along the microsolvation shells. It is shown that the interplay between water-water and backbone- water H-bonds clearly stabilizes the polyproline II conformation over the extended on at low microsolvation stages. However, stabilization is abated at large microsolvation stages.
