The effectiveness of naturally occurring antioxidant quercetin in the inactivation of the damaging lipid peroxide radical was investigated by means of hybrid density functional based approach, using the direct dynamics method, where the thermal rate constants were calculated using variational transition-state theory with multidimensional tunneling. H-atom abstraction in quercetin by CH(3)OO peroxide occurs preferentially at the 4'OH phenolic site, from both kinetic and thermodynamic points of… Expand
