Scientists from the University of Manchester department of chemistry were able to tie what might be the world’s tightest knot. Using a novel self-assembly process, knitting molecular strands around metal ions, this 192-atom closed loop (20 nm long) has breakthrough potential in the manufacturing of strong, lightweight, and flexible materials.
