Unprecedented control of polymer grids achieved

Applications in water purification, solar energy storage, body armor possible

25-Jun-2018

Synthetic polymers are ubiquitous -- nylon, polyester, Teflon and epoxy, to name just a few -- and these polymers are all long, linear structures that tangle into imprecise structures. Chemists have long dreamed of making polymers with two-dimensional, grid-like structures, but this goal has ...

Lone water molecules turn out to be directors of supramolecular chemistry

01-Jun-2018

Scientists in supramolecular chemistry often run into surprising outcomes. A broken seal of a lab cuvette led an American researcher at the Eindhoven University of Technology to the origin of these inexplicable results: the weather. Or the humidity, to be more precise, because this determines the ...
