Bio-mimicking TiO2 Architectures for Enhanced Photocatalytic Activity under UV and Visible Light
Green leaves are responsible for natural photosynthesis in plants and their unique structures offer the most efficient blueprint for artificial materials in terms of solar energy capture and utilisation. The full ...
What does quantum mechanics have to do with biomolecular interactions?
Quantum why? - All the ways we think about how molecules interact are fundamentally determined by how electrons behave - And of course that influences how atoms move/rearrange - We can predict how electrons behave ...
The No. 8 baling wire approach to quantum chemical modelling
Overview: - Our job as chemists is to understand and manipulate the behaviour of electrons within molecules ; - This has a knock-on effect for nuclei – influencing structure, dynamics and reactivity ; - What can and ...
Accounting for anharmonicity
Cofactor Tail Length Modulates Catalysis of Bacterial F420-Dependent Oxidoreductases
F420 is a microbial cofactor that mediates a wide range of physiologically important and industrially relevant redox reactions, including in methanogenesis and tetracycline biosynthesis. This deazaflavin comprises a ...
Beyond the Woodward-Hoffman rules: what controls reactivity in eliminative aromatic ring-forming reactions?
The Mallory (photocyclization) and Scholl (thermal cyclohydrogenation) reactions are widely used in the synthesis of extended conjugated systems of high scientific interest and technological importance, including molecular ...
