nanopatterns: New method for self-assembling #molecules #patterns

New method for self-assembling molecules:

"Researchers at the University of Sheffield have discovered a new way of making small molecules self-assemble into complex nanopatterns.

This will surely push the limits of what is possible in so-called ‘bottom-up’ methods of nanopatterning for advanced functional materials through molecular self-assembly."
