Molecular switch


A team of researchers from the universities of Pennsylvania State, Oregon and Rice, have created single-molecule switches, which have a predictable and stable response. But this new advance on the part of North American scientists promises to correct this trend.

Details of this research appear this month in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
