Organic Molecules on the Rebound

Abstract:
Scientists at the International University of Bremen and the University of Bonn have recently determined the precise structure of a large organic molecule after its interaction with a metal surface. The group of scientists also used the structure information to decipher clues about the chemical bond between the molecule and the surface. The organic-metallic interface is very important in science, especially in the fields of catalysis (chemical reactions between two species proceeding in the presence of a third species), bio-sensing, and molecular electronics (where signals are processed through circuit elements consisting, in some cases, of single molecules or arrays of molecules).
