Latest Cluster chemistry Stories
People throughout history have paid close attention to the fine detail of gold, from grizzled pioneers in the Old West to suspicious fiancés. But few of them ever found something as scientifically astonishing as researchers in Finland recently did.
Researchers from Brown University, Shanxi University and Tsinghua University in China have shown that a cluster of 40 boron atoms forms a hollow molecular cage similar to a carbon buckyball.
Graphene, a sheet of carbon one atom thick, may soon have a new nanomaterial partner, “borophene.”
New molecules could be larger than the original Buckminster fullerene with potential applications in technology and health care
A new form of very hard carbon clusters capable of indenting diamond has been observed by a team of Carnegie Institution for Science researchers.
Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology found a method to locate single gold atoms on a surface.
A doll in a doll, and then one more, enveloping them from the outside – this is how Thomas Faessler explains his molecule.
Like a shadowy character just hidden from view, a mystery atom in the middle of a complex enzyme called nitrogenase had long hindered scientists' ability to study the enzyme fully.
If we could make plant food from nitrogen the way nature does, we'd have a much greener method for manufacturing fertilizer – a process that requires such high temperatures and pressures that it consumes about 1.5 percent of the world's energy.
