DFT established research on bioactive molecules

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

DFT Based Studies on Bioactive Molecules is a suitable handbook for academics, students and researchers who are learning the basic biophysics and computational chemistry of bioactive molecules with reference to DFT models. This reference is a beginner friendly text having references at the end of each chapter

Key Feature includes the basic introduction of density functional theory and practical introduction to Gaussian program. It comprises of interpretation of input and output files and explanation of calculated parameters with the examples of several bioactive molecules (synthetic and natural) and correlation between theory and experiments. It also covers exploration of the hydrogen bonds.

 The book also features an exclusive chapter on the quantum theory of atoms in molecules and is supplemented by an appendix on the Gaussian output for methane. Subsequently, discussions on synthetic compounds, amino acids, and natural products have been offered by the authors for the benefit of the reader.
