Lord of the molecular rings created

Abstract:
The Borromean ring, an icon of Nordic and Christian traditions, has been self-assembled at the molecular scale level for the first time. The new molecule, composed of three interlocking rings, provides another new component for future nano-devices. For decades, chemists have been creating molecules with ever more complicated shapes. Two rings had already been made to interlock, by creating one ring and then building a second around it. A five-link chain has also been strung together. (more on earlier article)
