Highly reactive molecule imaged for the first time by David Fox group & IBM published in Nature Nanotechnology.
David Fox who spearheaded the project along with Anish Mistry in collaboration with IBM have synthesised and imaged a highly reactive molecule for the first time, Triangulene. It was first hypothesised in the 1950’s and ever since, chemists have struggled to synthesise it until now.
Triangulene, a triangular fragment of graphene which contains two radicals is predicted to have desirable properties for electronic devices. For more information see the article attached.
