Carbon-carbon covalent bonds far more flexible than presumed

A Hokkaido University research group has successfully demonstrated that carbon-carbon (C-C) covalent bonds expand and contract flexibly in response to light and heat. This unexpected flexibility of C-C bonds could confer ...

A new type of chemical bond: The charge-shift bond

John Morrison Galbraith is an associate professor of chemistry at Marist College who studies chemical bonding, which is the process that holds atoms together to make molecules.

Pushing the limits of 2-D supramolecules

Scientists at the University of South Florida have reached a new milestone in the development of two-dimensional supramolecules—the building blocks that make areas of nanotechnology and nanomaterial advancement possible.

Taking an X-ray of an atomic bond

Understanding the behavior of materials at their interfaces—where they connect to and interact with other materials—is central to engineering a variety of devices used to process, store and transfer information. Devices ...
