Just a single foreign atom located in the vicinity of a molecule can change spatial arrangement of its atoms.

Researchers Create First Soluble 2D Supramolecular Organic Frameworks
2013-12-16 14:20:48

Supramolecular chemistry, aka chemistry beyond the molecule, in which molecules and molecular complexes are held together by non-covalent bonds, is just beginning to come into its own with the emergence of nanotechnology.

What Does Water Looks Like To DNA?
2013-11-20 09:41:53

A team of biochemists and mathematicians have developed a sophisticated geometric model to predict how a biological molecule will interact with water molecules, computing the results up to 20 times faster than other existing approaches.

Nanomachines: Devices Of The Future
2013-08-28 09:42:10

Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences An innovative measurement method was used at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw for estimating power generated by motors of single molecule in size, comprising a few dozens of atoms only. The findings of the study are of crucial importance for construction of future nanometer machines – and they do not instil optimism. Nanomachines are devices of the future. Composed of a...

A Rice University laboratory has improved upon its ability to determine molecular structures in three dimensions in ways that challenge long-used standards.

Changing Organic Molecules' Interaction With Light
2013-08-06 13:28:05

MIT researchers discover a new platform that provides simple means to manipulate organic molecules' emission, and may have important implications to organic light emitting devices and molecular biosensors

One Chemical, Two Colors Of Crystals, Sheds Insight On Agostic Bonds Important In Industrial Catalysis
2013-08-04 07:48:34

Chemists have unexpectedly made two differently colored crystals -- one orange, the other blue -- from one chemical in the same flask while studying a special kind of molecular connection called an agostic bond.

Molecules Captured At Work During Graphene Research
2013-05-31 11:30:19

Felix Fischer of the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has been actively studying the process of building graphene, but in the process he and his fellow researchers discovered a powerful technique to capture pictures of molecules before and after they react with each other.

Buckyball Manipulated By Inserting A Single Water Molecule
2013-05-06 10:26:08

Columbia Engineering researchers have developed a technique to isolate a single water molecule inside a buckyball, or C60, and to drive motion of the so-called "big" nonpolar ball through the encapsulated "small" polar H2O molecule, a controlling transport mechanism in a nanochannel under an external electric field.

Word of the Day
  • 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.
