Mimicking nature: computational design of better antioxidants

By david satterthwaite • February 18th, 2015

The project will address a major challenge in biochemistry: how to design antioxidants that effectively scavenge harmful free radicals. This will involve the use of state-of-the-art quantum chemistry calculations to determine the molecular mechanisms of natural antioxidants and to design artificial antioxidants with higher efficacy. The research will introduce new concepts and methodologies that buildmore…
