Select the right atom to adjust atomic motions in transition metal dichalcogenides

Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs) are materials made from sheets of transition metal cations (Mo, W etc.) sandwiched between two sheets of chalcogen atoms (S, Se, Te); such atomic sandwiches are held together by weak forces (e.g. van

How magnetic interaction between two distant paramagnetic metals is influenced by central diamagnetic cyanidometal?

Magnetism is an ancient and classic physical phenomenon and will be forever interesting topics. Molecule-based magnetic materials, in which the structural building blocks are molecular in nature, are of increasing interest because they provide fundamental insight into

The passion of electrons for naked “green gold” in water to develop new nanotechnology applications

Electrons are negatively charged particles that are critical to the chemical reactions. Chemical reactions in living organisms, including humans, involve the movement and transfer of electrons. Indeed, the source of energy for life involves the transportation of

Silver clusters change form and color with each atom

Metal clusters are particles consisting of a few (usually between 2 and 100) metal atoms. Very often, metal clusters possess properties that differ markedly from both the constituting atoms and the bulk. Furthermore, they show nonscalable size

Operationally simple reactions with unprotected carbohydrates – an application of organocatalysis

Carbohydrates are ubiquitous in nature. They play an important role as an energy reservoir as well as they are the resource of countless biomaterials, such as cellulose or chitin. This importance has challenged chemists at all times
