Unique Chemical Bond

Abstract:
Biochemists at Oregon State University have “re-discovered” and characterized an important type of chemical bond – the “halogen bond”

Another field that could benefit from these findings, Pui Shing Ho said, is nanotechnology. “One of the more interesting current fields in nanotechnology is to build molecular structures using these DNA Holliday junctions, stitching them together into sheets or fabrics of DNA that other things can bind to, and you might use for a certain purpose, such as electronics or biological computing,” Ho said.
