New boron compounds for organic light-emitting diodes

Chemists have developed a new class of organic luminescent materials through the targeted introduction of boron atoms into the molecular structures. The compounds feature an intensive blue fluorescence and are therefore of interest for use in organic light-emitting diodes.

Near absolute zero, molecules may start to exhibit exotic states of matter

Experimental physicists have successfully cooled molecules in a gas of sodium potassium to a temperature of 500 nanokelvins - just a hair above absolute zero. They found that the ultracold molecules were relatively long-lived and stable, resisting reactive collisions with other molecules. The molecules also exhibited very strong dipole moments.

'Nano-raspberries' could bear fruit in fuel cells

Scientists have developed a fast, simple process for making platinum 'nano-raspberries' - microscopic clusters of nanoscale particles of the precious metal. The berry-like shape is significant because it has a high surface area, which is helpful in the design of catalysts.
