Abstract:The repeating unit of sulfonated "nata de coco" is D-glucose sulfonate. This research aims to determine the most stable structures of sulfonated nata de coco polymer membrane, the energy and hydrogen bonds, in order to understand the characteristics, local hydration, and proton transfer on the membrane on the ab initio electronic structure calculation. The minimum energy structure for its monomer (two, three, four and five) are calculated by B3LYP/6-311G (d) method. The calculations show that there is no signi… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
