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.

Word of the Day
  • Withering but not falling off, as a blossom that persists on a twig after flowering.
The word 'marcescent' comes from a Latin word meaning 'to wither'.
