Nanoscopic golden springs could unravel twisted molecules

University of Bath scientists have used gold spring-shaped coils 5,000 times thinner than human hairs and powerful lasers to enable the detection of twisted molecules, and the applications could improve pharmaceutical design, ...

Similar nanomaterials behave differently, but why

Nanotubes can be used for many things: electrical circuits, batteries, innovative fabrics and more. Scientists have noted, however, that nanotubes, whose structures appear similar, can actually exhibit different properties, ...

New method makes building 'one-handed' drugs easier than ever

Chemists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have invented a new technique for constructing one-handed or "chiral" drug molecules. The new method is already being adopted by pharmaceutical researchers.
