Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences Just a single foreign atom located in the vicinity of a molecule can change spatial arrangement of its atoms. In a spectacular experiment, an international team of researchers was able to change persistently positions of the nuclei of hydrogen atoms in a porphycene molecule by approaching a single copper atom to the molecule. A subatomic bit formed by two protons tunneling inside a simple organic molecule can be switched...

In chemistry, salt is a general term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, so that the product is neutral and without a net charge. These ions can be inorganic (Cl-) as well as organic (CH3-COO-) and monoatomic (F-) as well as polyatomic ions (SO42-). Solutions of salts in water are called electrolytes. Electrolytes as well as molten salts conduct electricity. Zwitterions are salts that contain an anionic center and a cationic...
