This paper on melanin components is the first one coming from the MSCA-IF of Jun Wang with Lluís Blancafort. Melanin is the photoprotecting material in living organisms, and it is composed of dihydroxyindole oligomers. We have studied a comprehensive virtual library of minimal oligomer models and obtained insights into the stability and optical properties that are fundamental to understand the function of the biological material.
The paper has been published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition:
