Nanoscale Borromean Rings - In the 28 May 2004 issue of Science, the Stoddart Group in collaboration with the Atwood group at the University of Missouri, Columbia report the self-assembly of molecular Borromean rings from 18 components by the template-directed formation of 12 imine and 30 dative bonds, associated with the coordination of three interlocked macrocycles, each tetranucleating and decadentate overall, to a total of six zinc (II) ions, in near quantitative yield. For more information, see the orginal article and visit the UCLA College Report dated 1 June 2004.
