As stricter regulations on CO2 emissions are adopted worldwide, identifying efficient chemical processes to capture and recycle CO2 is of critical importance for industry. One of the most common processes for the capture of amines is known as amine scrubbing and was pa...

The prediction of a drug’s likelihood of inducing an adverse drug reaction (ADR) is extremely difficult especially if this ADR event occurs via an immune based mechanism, also known as idiosyncratic ADR. A common idiosyncratic ADR pathway occurs when a drug binds to th...
