Rational Design of Carboxylate Supramolecular Complexes for Pyrolysis Bio-oil Valorization

A rational design of porosity has rarely been investigated in this class of carboxylate based supramolecular complexes for their use as catalysts in these bio-oil upgradation reactions. Theoretical investigations using DFT calculations will be performed first for the design of these new catalysts.

Biochemical and molecular characterization of Cytochrome P450 (CYPs) from extremophilic sources and their biotechnological applications

Cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYPs) are heme-containing monooxygenases, broadly distributed among living organisms, which play crucial roles in natural product biosynthesis e.g. steroids and the degradation of xenobiotics e.g. drug metabolism. P450s are considered amongst the most versatile biocatalysts ...
