New molecular butterflies help advance energy research

22 julio 2015

A new family of molecules that physically resemble butterflies is pushing the boundary of new materials research, scientists report. With these precisely designed molecules, the team also plans to learn how to better control and direct larger quantities of energy, and convert photo energy to light, electricity, heat or even molecular motion at will. Their research efforts will lead to the development of better materials and more efficient devices, such as sensors, light bulbs and solar panels.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
