By Thirumoorthy Krishnan

This publication discusses the impact of chirality and intermolecular interactions in biomimetic (amphiphilic and peptide structures) and organic (amino acids and version organic reactions concerning amino acids and peptides) platforms utilizing computational chemical equipment. iteration and retention of homochirality are essentially vital in biology. the variation in intermolecular interactions among enantiomeric and racemic pairs (homochiral and heterochiral interactions) and their interactions with the encircling molecular constructions resulting in chiral discrimination, that can be answerable for homochiral choice, can be mentioned. the character of intermolecular power surfaces as a functionality of molecular mutual orientations dictates the chiral discrimination in biology. the information won within the biomimetic structures is hired to appreciate extra complicated organic reactions like synthesis of amino acids via transamination response, synthesis of aminoacyl-tRNA within the aminoacylation method and synthesis of peptides in ribosome. The molecular acceptance procedure in biomimetic amphiphiles and peptides are correlated with the character of the intermolecular power surfaces.
