Scientists have created and imaged the smallest possible five-ringed structure.
A collaboration between the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the University of Warwick and IBM Research – Zurich has allowed the scientists to bring a single molecule to life in a using a combination of clever synthetic chemistry and state-of-the-art imaging techniques
