dc.description.abstract In this thesis, free energy calculations are employed to establish the conformation freedom of selected carbohydrates. The focus is on the biologically important (1-4)-linked glucans, although the α(1-1) α and α(1-6) linkages are also investigated. Two principal types of potential of mean force (PMF) caltulation are used: free energy calculations for ratations about dihedral angles and end-to-end distance free energy calculations for the extension and compression of oligosaccharide strands. en_ZA
