Wetting Camphor

January 13, 2016
An international collaboration centered in Melanie Schnell’s group from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter at CFEL in Hamburg carried out the first multi-isotopic substitution experiments to precisely determine the structure of a microsolvated organic molecule. Their study recently appeared in The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters and shows a new approach for understanding how solvation takes place at its early stages. [more]
