Molecule Anatomy Imaged for First Time

Molecule Anatomy Imaged for First Time

IBM scientists in Zurich, Switzerland, have taken the first ever close up view of a single molecule using atomic force microscopy. The stunning image shows in detail the anatomy of an organic molecule called a Pentacene, consisting of 22 carbon atoms and 14 hydrogen atoms. Even the atomic bonds at the molecule's periphery can be seen. This breakthrough is being reported in the August 28 issue of Science magazine. More info and video at PhysOrg.com.
