Chemical reaction yields "tapes" of porphin molecules
Flexible tapes from the nanoworld
2014-08-15 – News from the Physics Department
Dr. Wilhelm Auwärter and his team are working on a research project to develop tiny flat molecule tapes at the Department of Physics of Technische Universität München (TUM).
These structures could find versatile applications.
Via direct coupling on a silver surface, the scientists successfully formed dimers and short chains of porphine molecules without contaminating by-products.
