Latest Molecule Stories
ESA's Herschel Space Observatory has revealed the chemical fingerprints of potential life-enabling organic molecules in the Orion Nebula, a nearby stellar nursery in our Milky Way galaxy.
Physicists at JILA have for the first time observed chemical reactions near absolute zero, demonstrating that chemistry is possible at ultralow temperatures and that reaction rates can be controlled using quantum mechanics, the peculiar rules of submicroscopic physics.
With the passage of a molecule through the labyrinth of a chemical system being so critical to catalysis and other important chemical processes, computer simulations are frequently used to model potential molecule/labyrinth interactions.
The new method may revolutionize synthesis of natural products and therapeutic drugs.
Good news for heterogeneous catalysis and the hydrogen economy: computers can now be used to make accurate predictions of the reactions of (hydrogen) molecules with surfaces.
Recently, at Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute, NJ Tao and collaborators have found a way to make a key electrical component on a phenomenally tiny scale.
University of Florida chemists have pioneered a method to tease out promising molecular structures for capturing energy, a step that could speed the development of more efficient, cheaper solar cells.
Physicists get a grip on slippery molecules, and learn how the shape of nanoscopic magnetic islands affect data storage.
ZURICH, Aug. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) scientists have been able to image the "anatomy" -- or chemical structure -- inside a molecule with unprecedented resolution, using a complex technique known as noncontact atomic force microscopy.
Research at the University of Liverpool has found how mirror-image molecules gain control over each other and dictate the physical state of superstructures.
