I have some questions here :
- The hydrophobic effect drives the separation of oil and water, the formation of lipid bilayers in water, and folding of proteins in cells. What are the values of G,H,S in all of these processes?
- There are three kinds of noncovalent interactions: ionic interactions, hydrogen bonds, and van der Waals interactions. Characterize the relative importance of each in (1) protein folding
(2) Lipid bilayer formation
(3) the double helical structure of DNA
Thermodynamics of hydrophobic interactions Delta S is < 0 in these hydrophobic interactions with water. Presence of a... View the full answer
