Accidental discovery of strong and unbreakable molecular switch

An organic material that can repeatedly change shape without breaking would have many useful applications, such as artificial muscles, pumps or as a switch. Physicists at Radboud University accidentally discovered a material ...

New synthesis of complex organic molecules revealed

Japanese scientists have—for the first time—developed an efficient way to make organic molecules that have so far been difficult to synthesize because of their overall bulky structure and general instability.

How to free trapped radicals from carboxyl

The removal of carboxyl groups and the release of alkyl radical fragments from the tight binding of carboxyl groups are promising directions in organic synthesis, especially in drug synthesis. Various catalysts have been ...
