NChem research highlights: Buckyballs, self-assembly and antitumour agents

Like Comment

Happy Friday everyone, and welcome to this week’s batch of research highlights.


Buckyballs act just like giant atoms, complete with s, p and d orbitals that are bound to the sphere’s hollow centre

Antitumour agents:

Hiding a potent, but insoluble, anticancer drug inside a cage complex represents a new approach to the use of inorganic chemotherapeutics


Discrete complexes comprising stacks of up to nine aromatic molecules can be assembled in one step from a few simple building blocks

As for last week, anyone can read the articles for free, but you need to sign up for a free account first.
