Quick Nanocontainer ConstructionPosted on January 02, 2006
Nanoscale containers are in high demand because of their ability to enclose molecules. They can, for example, be used as molecular reaction chambers for controlled chemical reactions or as transporters and storage containers for drugs or pesticides; they can also filter poisonous substances out of water. The synthesis of such capsules is not easy. American researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey have now produced an octahedral nanocontainer whose 18 components can be assembled in a single, elegant reaction step.
