Monday – Olympic spirit for everyone doing exams!


IBM Research Labs' Olympic Molecule

The above image shows an AFM image of the molecule Olympicene, which was first synthesised at the University of Warwick after the RSC commissioned chemists there to make it in celebration of the London Olympics!

Hopefully the sight of this and news of such superb chemistry will encourage those of you with exams left to sit! Best of luck!
