THE DIMENSIONALITY OF SUPRAMOLECULAR COMPOUNDS

Г.В. Жижин

Abstract


The geometric features of supramolecular compounds known to be important for biological systems are considered to show that the dimensionality of the compounds is higher than three.

Keywords


supramolecular compounds, dimensionality, polytope, hemoglobin, chlorophyll
