Reactivity of a phospholipid monolayer model under periodic boundary conditions: a density functional theory study of the Schiff base formation between phosphatidylethanolamine and acetaldehyde.


A mechanism for the formation of the Schiff base between an acetaldehyde and an amine-phospholipid monolayer model based on Dmol3/density functional theory calculations under periodic boundary conditions was constructed. This is the first time such a system has been modeled to examine its chemical reactivity at this computation level. Each unit cell… (More)
