Scientists give humans an advantage in the fight against the increasingly strong superbugs.
Scientists break the world record with a microscopic circular triple helix made from just 200 atoms.
A research group has developed the thinnest possible electrical wires, with a size of just three atoms wide using fragments of molecule-sized diamonds, the smallest diamonds we have.
The most basic molecule required to create an organism could have originated from infrared light emissions from young stars also called "starlight."
Three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry for designing machines that are thinner than a strand of hair.
Scientist have detected for the first time the existence of the chiral molecule propylene oxide in the interstellar space.
Scientists at University of Oregon have successfully synthesized new stable long-lasting carbon-based molecules that could potentially be used for solar cells and electronic devices
In work that will likely have far-ranging implications for colloids, nanoparticles, and molecules, researchers at University of Chicago were for the first time able to observe particles gathering in a planetary-formation type process.
Complex organic molecules, the building blocks of life, have been discovered in an infant star system for the first time, according to new research.
A new molecule-making machine developed by a team at the University of Illinois is a breakthrough in the chemistry field, as it could potentially speed up the development of new drugs, a new study says.
Scientists have successfully created a map of certain mysterious molecules found in space, helping to shed light on a long-standing puzzle, according to new research.
Discovered 27,000 light-years away from Earth, astronomers have found an unusual carbon-based molecule that could hint at the origins of life, according to a new study.
Photosynthesis is a plant's life source, and by taking a closer look at its mechanics with the help of short pulses of light, scientists have found that molecule vibrations give this process an extra boost.
