Water caged in buckyballs

Researchers describe how water molecules 'caged' in fullerene spheres are providing a deeper insight into spin isomers - varieties of a molecule that differ in their nuclear spin. The results of this work may one day help enhance the analytical and diagnostic power of nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance imaging.

Scientists use nanoparticles to control growth of materials

Researchers have developed a new process to control molecular growth within the 'building block' components of inorganic materials. The method, which uses nanoparticles to organize the components during a critical phase of the manufacturing process, could lead to innovative new materials, such as self-lubricating bearings for engines, and it could make it feasible for them to be mass-produced.
