  • New molecular force probe stretches molecules, atom by atom

    Chemists at Illinois who have created a simple and inexpensive molecular technique that replaces an expensive atomic force microscope for studying what happens to small molecules when they are stretched or compressed: from left, Daria Khvostichenko, postdoctoral researcher; Zhen Huang and Timothy Kucharski, graduate students; Qing-Zheng Yang, research associate; and Roman Boulatov, professor of chemistry.
