Nanoscale Borromean Links

Nanoscale Borromean Links - The nontrivial link known as the Borromean rings has long been a source of endless fascination among artists, theologians, mathematicians, and scientists. The molecular construction of the Borromean Ring (BR) topology represents a formidable synthetic challenge as they consist of three mutually interlocked, yet noncatenated more...

Pretzelanes Go Nano

Through its exploitation of noncovalent bonding interactions and self-assembly processes, supramolecular assistance to covalent synthesis has established itself as an efficient means of creating molecules with nanoscale dimensions. For two decades, researchers have harnessed the power of post-assembly covalent modification to produce an array more...
