Latest Supramolecular chemistry Stories
Our cells are controlled by billions of molecular "switches" and chemists at UC Santa Barbara have developed a theory that explains how these molecules work. Their findings may significantly help efforts to build biologically based sensors for the detection of chemicals ranging from drugs to explosives to disease markers.
PRINCETON, N.J., July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DOR BioPharma, Inc.
-The construction of complex man-made objects--a car, for example, or even a pizza--almost invariably entails what are known as "top-down" processes, in which the structure and order of the thing being built is imposed from the outside (say, by an automobile assembly line, or the hands of the pizza maker).
Plasmonics -- a possible replacement for current computing approaches -- may pave the way for the next generation of computers that operate faster and store more information than electronically-based systems and are smaller than optically-based systems, according to a Penn State engineer who has developed a plasmonic switch.

By Anonymous NANOTECHNOLOGY We encounter valves every day, whether in a water faucet, automobile carburetor, or bicycle tire tube. Valves also are present in the world of nanotechnology. A team of researchers headed by J. Fraser Stoddart and Jeffrey I.
Indiana University Bloomington chemists have designed an organic molecule that binds negatively charged ions, a feat they hope will lead to the development of a whole new molecular toolbox for biologists, chemists and medical researchers who want to remove chlorine, fluorine and other negatively charged ions from their solutions.
Biological and medical research is on the threshold of a new era based on better understanding of how large organic molecules bind together and recognise each other.
A new rubber-like material created with the ability to â€œhealâ€ itself is paving the way for the development of a wide variety of new products.
By Rostro, Betty Catalina Water is one of nature's most amazing fluids-and the hydrogen bond is the key to understanding its peculiar, eccentric and mesmerizing properties. Water is all over-two-thirds of the planet is covered by it-sometimes where we need it, sometimes not.
Synthetic Metals is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Elsevier. It covers all aspects of electronic polymers and electronic molecular materials. It is an international medium for the rapid publication of original research papers, short communications and subject reviews dealing with research on and applications of electronic polymers and electronic molecular materials including novel carbon architectures. Original manuscripts on chemical, electrochemical, electrical, photonic...
