A team of researchers at The University of Manchester led by Professor David Leigh in Manchester’s School of Chemistry have been successful in producing the most elaborate regular woven molecule. They braided numerous molecular strands such that the tightest knot has eight crossings in a 192-atom closed loop — which is about 20 nanometres long. The team used a mechanism called “self-assembly,” which means just like knitting, the molecular strands are woven around metal ions at crossing points and the liberate completes are secured by a chemical catalyst to form a accomplish knot. They believe that using this technology can help in developing a fresh generation of super-strong and supple materials.
