Globally Optimal Catalytic Fields - Inverse Design of Abstract Embeddings for Maximum Reaction Rate Acceleration.

Summary of "Globally Optimal Catalytic Fields - Inverse Design of Abstract Embeddings for Maximum Reaction Rate Acceleration."

The search for, and understanding of, good catalysts for chemical reactions is a central issue for chemists. Here, we present first steps towards developing a general computational framework to better support this task. This framework combines efficient, unbiased global optimization techniques with an abstract representation of the catalytic environment, to shrink the search space. To analyze the resulting catalytic embeddings, we employ dimensionality reduction and clustering techniques. This not only provides an inverse design approach to new catalytic embeddings but also illuminates the actual interactions behind catalytic effects. All this is illustrated here with a strictly electrostatic model for the environment and with two versions of a selected example reaction. We close with detailed discussions of future improvements of our framework.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.

Phenomena and pharmaceutics of compounds that inhibit the function of agonists (DRUG AGONISM) and inverse agonists (DRUG INVERSE AGONISM) for a specific receptor. On their own, antagonists produce no effect by themselves to a receptor, and are said to have neither intrinsic activity nor efficacy.

RNA that has catalytic activity. The catalytic RNA sequence folds to form a complex surface that can function as an enzyme in reactions with itself and other molecules. It may function even in the absence of protein. There are numerous examples of RNA species that are acted upon by catalytic RNA, however the scope of this enzyme class is not limited to a particular type of substrate.

The measurement of magnetic fields over the head generated by electric currents in the brain. As in any electrical conductor, electric fields in the brain are accompanied by orthogonal magnetic fields. The measurement of these fields provides information about the localization of brain activity which is complementary to that provided by ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY. Magnetoencephalography may be used alone or together with electroencephalography, for measurement of spontaneous or evoked activity, and for research or clinical purposes.

Fields representing the joint interplay of electric and magnetic forces.
