The objective of this studywas to analyze the effect of the constituent units, type of interflavan bond, and conformation on the antioxidant properties of PCs dimers including PB3, PB4, PB5, PB6, PB7, and PB8, employing the DFT method.
We have previously demonstrated that DHZ and the corresponding symmetric dimer (DHZ dimer) protect lipids from autoxidation in combination with common antioxidants [44].
Table 2 shows the relative abundance of monomers to dimers of bovine IgG in formulations A, B and C as determined by SEC-MALS.
Coupled metallic nanoparticle pairs are referred to as plasmonic "dimer" [10].

The remainder of the paper is spent investigating the properties of the double- dimer ensemble.
Once the Caltech researchers had linked two CV-Ns together, they wanted to know if the enhanced ability of their engineered dimers to ward off HIV was related to the availability of additional binding sites.
Rationally designed chiral sulfonamide cinnamic acids readily form robust supramolecular dimers via the complementary features of non-bonded contacts and molecular shape.
* Dimers: Researchers have discovered that dimers (soluble two-molecule oligomers) of beta-amyloid protein fragments--but not the insoluble plaque cores in which they become embedded--may initiate the disease process in AD.

Dimers of gA can be obtained by introduction of a dioxolane ring between N-formylated termini of two gA molecules.
Enzymatic photoreactivation is a direct mechanism to repair UV-induced cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation (200-300 mm) promotes the formation of a cyclobutyl ring between adjacent pryimidine residues on the same DNA strand so as to form an intrastrand dimer.
Theorists predict that these silicon pairs, or dimers, should be most reactive when other atoms or molecules catch them midway between a teeter and a totter, when the two silicon atoms are on an even plane.
