Latest chemical bond Stories
Currently, heading off into space requires a shuttle, rocket or some sort of high velocity vehicle with enough power to push through Earth's atmosphere. What if you could take a "space elevator" instead?
UC Irvine chemists have scored a scientific first: capturing moving images of a single molecule as it vibrates, or “breathes,” and shifts from one quantum state to another.
Thin layer of picene molecules attached to a silver surface maintain their structure and function, demonstrating potential for electronic applications
Scientists have married two unconventional forms of carbon – one shaped like a soccer ball, the other a tiny diamond – to make a molecule that conducts electricity in only one direction.
Ultrafast X-ray laser research led by Kansas State University has provided scientists with a snapshot of a fundamental molecular phenomenon.
A combined computational and experimental study of self-assembled silver-based structures known as superlattices has revealed an unusual and unexpected behavior: arrays of gear-like molecular-scale machines that rotate in unison when pressure is applied to them.
Researchers have reportedly developed a new tool that could make it possible to observe the making and breaking of chemical bonds and how molecules behave during a chemical reaction.
Graphene, a sheet of carbon one atom thick, may soon have a new nanomaterial partner, “borophene.”
Supramolecular chemistry, aka chemistry beyond the molecule, in which molecules and molecular complexes are held together by non-covalent bonds, is just beginning to come into its own with the emergence of nanotechnology.
A Rice University laboratory has improved upon its ability to determine molecular structures in three dimensions in ways that challenge long-used standards.
