We have just the thing to pick you up from your post-weekend back-to-work blues: another selection of research highlights.
Our first highlight reports work on a clever self-healing coating, made-up of several nanolayers, that can heal itself after being scratched.
In the second selection, Ros highlights the synthesis of dendritic scaffolds that could have potential as bacterial infection inhibitors.
Single-molecule magnets are the focus of the third highlight, more specifically the modification of their properties by encapsulating them with polyoxometalate ligands.
