Bacterial cellulose

Concept: Bacterial cellulose is a form of cellulose resulting from biosynthesis performed by bacteria from the genera Glucanacetobacter, Agrobacterium, Rhizobium, Sarcina, Alcaligenes, etc., from which the most efficient and, consequently, more thoroughly studied is Glucanacetobacter xylinus. It was in the culture medium of these gram-negative, anaerobic bacteria, often found in fruits, vegetables, vinegar and fermented […]

Computational chemistry

Computational chemistry is a branch of chemistry that uses computational tools (that is, specialized software) to study the characteristics and behavior of matter. These programs employ mathematical tools to calculate chemical properties such as potential energy, free energy, molecular geometry at equilibrium and transition states, dipole moment, vibrational spectra, electronic and charge distribution, etc.  It […]
