It can be imaged that the large anions would impose remarkable steric hindrance on the iron centers.
Joe Moran, vice president of marketing and business development at HB Chemical, stated that the firm is excited to bring a steric acid specifically manufactured for the rubber industry to market.
Low dose colchicine binding to beta-tubulin results in curved tubulin dimer and prevents it from adopting a straight structure, due to a steric clash between colchicine and beta-tubulin.
Generally, the combination of both electrostatic and steric stabilization is termed electrosteric stabilization and can be achieved using polyelectrolytes.
The MODELLER model with the lowest % of high energy had the best Ramachandran result at one steric clash in a flexible zone of the structure away from the orthosteric site.
Amino acids descriptors such as Divided Physico-chemical Property Scores (DPPS), Vectors of Hydrophobic, Steric and Electronic properties (VHSE) were applied to QSAR study of 214 tripeptides.
Regarding steric stabilization, the additive will physically reduce the mobility of the pigment particles and therefore avoid/minimize flocculation or re-agglomeration.
Since the coverage of the grain boundary by the bulky ammonium cations can stop its further growth, the bulky cations with stronger steric hindrance (A > BA > PEA), which is mainly determined by the group directly connected with the ammonium, should result in larger grain sizes due to their slower reaction rates.
These initial works showed that if steric interactions are not strong, a rigid rotor model applies.
In the 3D-QSAR study, the correlation between 3D steric and electrostatic fields and biologically activity draws attention.
However, the steric role of these proteins in the oxidative stabilization of meat emulsions is poorly understood.
