Hello,

Why is hexane the correct answer. Wouldn't be energetically favorable for it interact with hexane since there both non-polar molecules? Thanks.

Hexane, being nonpolar, will interact with the leucine residues, preventing leucine from undergoing the dimerization process described in the question stem.
