Theoretical evaluation of simple amino acids and α-amino amidines

  • evaluation and comparison of chemical and physical properties using MD/AIMD simulations and quantum chemical calculations
  • force field parameterization for improved simulations
  • analyzing folding mechanisms for larger biomolecules build from these compounds
  • investigate applications in the fields of organo catalysis and ionic liquids
  • relevance of α-amino amidines in alternative prebiotic chemistry
