Selected Theoretical Models and Computational Methods for Enzymatic Tunnelling

Enzymes catalyse a broad spectrum of hydrogen-tunnelling reactions. In such reactions, the quantum-mechanical nature of the hydrogen nucleus enables sampling of classically forbidden regions and hence tunnelling through potential-energy barriers. In one type of model that describes hydrogen tunnelli...
