Precise control of catalytic reactions

“Using this nanoreactor, it is possible to synthesize complex drugs that could not be synthesized inside the body until now”


Various chemical reactions occur one after another in cells, and life is maintained as each step of the reaction is regulated without error. Recently, a Korean research team has developed a dual-catalyst system that can precisely control catalytic reactions like cells. A POSTECH research team led ...

The structure of the smallest semiconductor was elucidated

The smallest semiconductor composed of only 27 atoms, the Cd14Se13 cluster, has an interesting core-cage structure


A semiconductor is a material whose conductivity lies somewhere between that of a conductor and an insulator. This property allows semiconductors to serve as the base material for modern electronics and transistors. It is no understatement that the technological progress in the latter part of the ...

Measuring the ‘wettability’ of graphene and other 2D materials

Microscopic understanding of wettability can be achieved at the molecular level using 'vibrational sum-frequency generation spectroscopy'


Wettability of the material is the ability of a liquid to maintain contact with a solid surface, and it is proportional to hydrophilicity and inversely proportional to hydrophobicity. It is one of the most important properties of a solid, and understanding the wettability of different substrates ...
