Project Profile

Macromolecular Interfaces with Life Sciences: Oxidative Processes (MILES)

Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University


Many boundaries at the chemistry-biology interface remain unexplored and represent unique opportunities for the discovery of advanced technologies and the education of interdisciplinary scientists and engineers. Oxidation processes occur within both synthetic macromolecules and biological systems, offering a common theoretical base. Oxygen-centered radicals are implicated as intermediates in… more »
