Michalina Rusek, Karolina Kwaśna, Armand Budzianowski, and Andrzej Katrusiak

DOI: 10.1021/acs.jpcc.9b09428

Synopsis

Several structures of hexafluorobenzene at low temperature at atmospheric pressure or high pressure at room temperature have been published.

There are also structures of the new high-pressure phase.

Designing of diamino based esterases inhibitors; synthesis, characterization, density functional theory and molecular modeling

Muhammad Asam Raza, Kiran Fatima, Zenab Saqib, Jan K. Maurin, Armand Budzianowski

Highlights

  • Six diamine based dithoic acids were proposed for esterases inhibitors.
  • The most potent molecules on the basis of theoretical studies were synthesized.
  • Both theoretical and experimental studies were in close agreement.

Keywords: Esterases; Density functional theory; Molecular docking; Dithioic acid
