Next Colloquium


April 6 at 18:00 European Time (9am PST, 12pm EST, 1am JST)

Prof. Arieh Warshel

Department of Chemistry University of Southern California, US

Computer Simulations of Electrochemical Processes in Biochemical Systems and the Relevance to non-Biological Systems

This presentation  describes simulation studies of electrochemical effects in Biological systems and consider the general power of such simulations. We  start by considering our pioneering microscopic simulations of redox potentials as well as  electron and proton transport processes. Furthermore, the conversion of protonmotive force to mechanical energy is described in clear molecular details. We then move to simulations of voltage activated ion channels. These simulations involve explicit treatment of the electrolytes and the electrodes (which is not available in continuum  studies). We further describe simulations of the potential generated  by light induced charge separation processes.


Our approaches should provide a powerful way of studying artificial energy storage device and their  light and  chemical activation process.
