Molecular Sierpinski triangles get stability upgrade

Jennifer Newton writes about a hot ChemComm article for Chemistry World

Metal–nitrile coordination bonds hold the structures together

Earlier this year we reported that scientists in China had built molecular Sierpiński triangles from small aromatic building blocks. Now, another team in China has constructed fractal triangles on the molecular scale and this time, they’re much more robust. Read more in Chemistry World»
