[63] argued that the structural figure of phenolic compounds has the potential to interact with several proteins; mainly, they have a hydrophobic benzenoid ring and hydrogen-binding properties which enhance their capacity to be antioxidants by inhibiting several enzymes that catalyze radical generation, including xanthine oxidase, cytochrome P450 isoforms, cyclooxygenase, and lipoxygenase enzymes.
The resonant structure of the PEDOT changes from a benzenoid structure to a quinoid structure after adding a sugar alcohol [46] initiating an ordered planar backbone [47, 48].

Three characteristic absorption bands are observed in the spectra of pani at 269 nm, 368 nm and 618nm wavelength, n-Alpani composite had absorption peaks at 270 nm, 371 nm and 633nm which are attributed to [pi] -[[pi].sup.*]conjugated ring systems, polaron -[[pi].sup.*] and [pi]-polaron benzenoid to quinoid excitonic transition respectively.
The characteristic peaks of PANI from the Fig.8 were observed at 476.374 [cm.sup.-1] ( naphthalenes Out of plane ring bending), 800 [cm.sup.-1] (N-H out of plane bending absorption), 970 [cm.sup.-1] (C=C bending)[14], 1150 [cm.sup.-1] (C-H bending mode of Q ring, 1296 [cm.sup.-1]C-N stretching of secondary aromatic amine),1494 [cm.sup.-1](C=C stretching/C=N asymmetric stretching/C-H bending modes of benzenoid ring), 1560 [cm.sup.-1] (C=C stretching/C-H bending modes of quinoid ring)[15,16].
In addition, the molecular recognition for compound 8f is improved by two weak noncovalent intermolecular interactions: His47 and the furan oxygen with a distance of 2.69 [Angstrom] and a [pi]-sulfur interaction between Cys95 and the benzenoid ring in the naphthoquinone moiety with a distance of 2.47 [Angstrom].
