MOLECULE OF THE WEEK

You can make me in base but not in acid.
What molecule am I?

It’s Gold; It’s Magic
“Magic” gold nanoclusters (MAuNCs) are more stable than smaller or larger ones. The three methylbenzenethiol isomers form varying sizes of MAuNCs.

Nano Letters

Formic Acid Made Easily
Reducing CO2 with NaBH4 to make formate was first explored in the 1950s. Here, it proceeds under pressure with no catalyst to make formic acid.

Organometallics

Theranostic Nanoparticles
Optically labeled thermosensitive liposomes can deliver an antitumor drug while providing simultaneous imaging of nanoparticle biodistribution.
