Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

"One of the fundamental mysteries of chemistry has been solved by Australian scientists—and the result may have implications for future designs of solar cells, organic light-emitting diodes and other next gen technologies.

"Ever since the 1930s debate has raged inside chemistry circles concerning the fundamental structure of benzene. It is a debate that in recent years has taken on added urgency, because benzene—which comprises six carbon atoms matched with six hydrogen atoms—is the smallest molecule that can be used in the production of opto-electronic materials, which are revolutionising renewable energy and telecommunications tech."
