Innovative imaging technique clarifies molecular self-assembly

selfassembly

A unique collaboration between chemists and mathematicians at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has led to a new imaging technique that enables the study of molecular self-assembly with an unprecedented level of detail. The researchers, led by TU/e professors Bert Meijer and Remco van der Hofstad, published their breakthrough last week in the leading journal Science. The new technique opens a world of unique opportunities for the study of complex self-assembling materials, not found in nature, with many potential applications in electronics, medicine and energy.
