This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.
|Project description:||This project is focused on the determination of the relationships between physical properties, energetics and structure of selected aromatic compounds (e.g. derivatives of phenol, aniline, thiophenol, pyrrole) with antioxidant potential. Quantum chemical methods (ab initio and density functional theory approaches) will be intensively employed. These methods will be used for the study of thermodynamics of antioxidant action, too. Effect of non-polar and polar solvents will be investigated using molecular dynamics simulations. Obtained results will be confronted with experimental data available in the literature or with the results of physico-chemical, spectroscopic and thermodynamic measurements. Further development and application of molecular dynamics represents one of the main aims of the project.|
