New Technique For Molecular Assembly
- MOLECULES, LIKE TINKERTOYS, LINK UP
IN A STEP FORWARD FOR SELF-ASSEMBLY
By developing a novel way to make molecules assemble themselves, researchers
may have opened a new route to microscopic devices, including nanoscale
Like Tinkertoys or Lincoln Logs, the molecules connect to each other only at
certain points. As a result, the molecules build into predictable shapes.
