The longest single crystal structure confirmed azaacene derivative: one step forward large conjugation molecules

Organic semiconductors are supposed to be the next generation semiconductors, which shows many great advantages over silicon. For example, their devices are easier and cheaper for fabricating and can be flexible. Their variable molecular structures can be

Halogen bonding assembly of an iodide-binding triple helix

Wind turbines, spiral staircases, and springs—these are a few examples of helices in everyday life. The helix is also a reoccurring concept in mythology, spanning many cultures. In biology, helices are both essential and pervasive. Collagen, the

Atomic structures of telomerase shed light into the mechanism of telomere replication

Telomeres comprise the six nucleotide repeats at the end of eukaryotic chromosomes and they are essential for the faithful replication and protection of our genome. Significant telomere attrition forces the cells to enter a dormant state to
