Tuning the Self Assembly of Bio-inspired Catalysts and Materials

Aitken, Heather


With a view to designing selective bio-inspired catalysts, the following thesis seeks to understand and tune the self-assembly of bio-inspired and biological materials and catalysts. The first chapter introduces the concept of self-assembly and its importance in bio-inspired chemistry. In chapter 2, to highlight the role of self-assembly in biology, DNA G-quadruplex formation is simulated using molecular dynamics to determine the structural deformities caused by specific mutations of the human...[Show more]
