Abstract EN

Background: The materials science may come to assist pharmacists to fabricate new drugs for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Objectives: The geometrical structure of elements on the surface of severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is analyzed to illustrate some hints about the possible choosing the factors captivating the surface of SARS-CoV-2.

Methods: The crystallographic classes and their sub-structures can be indicative of practical selection of macromolecules in drug pharmacy.

Results: The macromolecular structures with hexagonal and its sub-structures are suggested for pharmacists to probe a novel drug for COVID-19.

Conclusions: Any progress in the field of fabricating macromolecular drugs for COVID-19 is strongly dependent on finding the hexagonal and its sub-structures such as triangular and rhombus geometries.
