Water molecules are continuously forming short-lived networks called clusters.
Researchers at the Department of Chemistry and Nanoscience Center (NSC) of the University of JyvÃ¤skylÃ¤ (Dr Olga Lopez-Acevedo and Professor Hannu HÃ¤kkinen) have resolved the structural, electronic and optical properties of a chiral gold nanocluster that remained a mystery for ten years.
Transforming lead into gold is an impossible feat, but a similar type of "alchemy" is not only possible, but cost-effective too.
Splitting fluorescent protein helps image clusters in live cells.
Researchers from Lehigh and Rice universities combine electron microscopy and spectroscopy techniques to shed new light on a tungstated zirconia catalyst.
Small, smaller, â€œnanoâ€ data storage! Interest is growing in the use of metallofullerenes â€“ carbon â€œcagesâ€ with embedded metallic compounds â€“ as materials for miniature data storage devices.
Scientists have long suspected that Alzheimer's disease (AD) is caused by a small protein called the amyloid Î²-protein
U.S. scientists have discovered a magnetic superatom that might one day be used to create molecular electronic devices for future computers. Virginia Commonwealth University researchers said the superatom consists of a stable cluster of atoms that can mimic different elements of the periodic table.
