NYU Chemists Discover Twisted Molecules That Pick Their Targets


New York University chemists have discovered how to make molecules with a twist-the molecules fold in to twisted helical shapes that can accelerate selected chemical reactions. The research, reported in the latest issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), could yield valuable methods for making pharmaceuticals and other chemicals that require precise assembly of complex structures.
