With the continuously increasing power of computers, quantum chemistry is becoming a valuable theoretical tool in enzyme research. Molecules as large as flavins can now be treated by computational methods of reasonable theoretical level. The present chapter focuses on the possibilities and restrictions of some quantum chemical methods with respect to research on the chemistry of flavin cofactors in enzyme catalysis.
