Abstract:
This paper reports the results which intent to enhance the understanding of mechanisms and transitions taking place in biological systems. In order to mimic these low energy processes in natural systems, as well as to perform characterization and data acquisition of these processes, we develop a new methodology. We study the conformational changes of acetylcholine (ACh) during propagation through a nano/microporous polymer system.
