Real-Time Imaging Reveals Flexibility of Crystal Surfaces

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Images taken using an atomic force microscope have enabled researchers from Kyoto University’s Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) to observe, for the first time, the flexible and dynamic changes that occur on the surfaces of porous coordination polymer (PCP) crystals when biphenyl guest molecules are introduced. The atomic force microscope was formed using a tiny probe at the end of a cantilever. The probe’s movements over the surface of the material were recorded, providing an image of the material’s topography. Researchers observed porous...Read full article
