What is it about?

We made these complexes to understand what may change in the EGCG characters if these complexes were to form in the body.

Why is it important?

These complexes were form for the fist time in these conditions. Their characteristics was thoroughly studied also for the first time. We propose the usage of these complexes in medical or as supplements to balance copper and zinc ions in the body, but that needs more in vivo investigation.


I felt the real chemistry in this research. Although not all the results were written in this single paper, the rest will follow soon hopefully.
