New 'molecular movie' reveals ultrafast chemistry in motion

X-ray laser measures atomic-scale details of how ring-shaped gas molecule breaks open, unravels

23-Jun-2015

Scientists for the first time tracked ultrafast structural changes, captured in quadrillionths-of-a-second steps, as ring-shaped gas molecules burst open and unraveled. Ring-shaped molecules are abundant in biochemistry and also form the basis for many drug compounds. The study points the way to ...
