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.

Chemists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have, for the first time, completely analyzed the fingerprint region of the Terahertz spectrum of a biologically relevant molecule in water, in this case, an amino acid.

Chemiscope To Help Chemistry In Action
2014-03-18 05:09:00

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.


Word of the Day
swell-mobsman
  • A member of the swell-mob; a genteelly clad pickpocket. Sometimes mobsman.
Use of the word 'swell-mobsman' dates at least to the early 1800s.
