Latest Molecule Stories
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.
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.
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.
IBM has just released what they’re calling the “World’s Smallest Movie,” a short film composed entirely of individual atoms as actors.
Software builds "library" of millions of small, carbon-based molecules chemists might synthesize.
How you get the chameleon of the molecules to settle on a particular "look" has been discovered by RUB chemists led by Professor Dominik Marx.
Though scientists have long believed that complex organic molecules couldn’t survive fossilization, some 350-million-year-old remains of aquatic sea creatures uncovered in Ohio, Indiana, and Iowa have challenged that assumption.
In the blink of an eye, more attoseconds have expired than the age of Earth measured in – minutes.
Until now, however, it was practically impossible to accurately predict which molecules performed well on the job. They basically had to be identified by trial-and-error.
For all those who worried back in 2004 that the sky was falling because the original model of the molecular structure of water toppled out, have no fear, because things can go back to the way they used to be.
