We have performed calculations for electron collisions with tetrahydrofuran (THF) using the UK molecular R-matrix codes. This is the largest molecule ever treated with the R-matrix method, and the only biologically relevant molecule of this size studied theoretically in the inelastic regime. We report ab initio integral cross section for incident energies up to 10 eV. No shape resonances have been found for this system, but a few core-excited resonances are present.
