Scientists at the University of Oregon have discovered a new type of carbon-based nanomaterial called interlocking rings molecules that has unique structural features. Like other nanomaterials, these linked-together molecules have interesting properties that can be "tuned" by changing their size and chemical makeup. This could make them useful for a wide range of applications, such as specialized sensors, flexible electronics, dynamic biomedical materials and new kinds of electronics. The team used a new method that allows for many different variations of the structure to be created, which will enable scientists to more fully explore the properties of these new materials.
