FLOG: A system to select ‘quasi-flexible’ ligands complementary to a receptor of known three-dimensional structure
We present a system, FLOG (Flexible Ligands Oriented on Grid), that searches a database of 3D coordinates to find molecules complementary to a macromolecular receptor of known 3D structure. Expand

Theoretical infrared spectra of some model polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: effect of ionization.
In order to test the hypothesis of ionized polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) as possible carriers of the UIR bands, we realized a computational exploration on selected PAHs of small dimensionExpand
