Edinburgh atom weaving could strengthen plastic
from BBC News
Weaving threads of atoms into star-shapes could produce lighter, stronger plastics, according to scientists. Edinburgh University researchers have managed to tie molecules into complex knots which they said could give materials "exceptional versatility." Working on a scale, which is 80,000 times smaller than a hair's breadth, the team has woven threads of atoms. They have been creating building blocks of materials which are flexible and potentially shock absorbent.
