Project Description:

This interdisciplinary project will incorporate the disciplines of chemistry and biochemistry. We will investigate structural changes in peptides that occur upon coordination of metal complexes to amino acid side chains. Further, we will investigate how these structural changes influence electron transfer through the peptide. Overall, students will learn peptide synthesis, inorganic synthesis, and electrochemical techniques. The project is specifically housed within the Hope College Department of Chemistry.
