Evidence of “Memory” In Molecular Interactions

Evidence has been uncovered that some molecular interactions on cell surfaces may have a “memory” that affects their future interactions. The intriguing new findings, reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences could lead to a re-examination of previous results from single-molecule research. In the past, researchers using sequentially repeated tests to obtain […]

Getting Physical With Molecules

The same researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UI) who came up with self-healing plastic have described in Nature a new technique that utilizes mechanical force to alter the course of chemical reactions. “This is a fundamentally new way of doing chemistry,” said UI’s Jeffrey Moore, explaining how mechanical energy allows chemists to […]
