A Hidden Template The entropic challenge inherent in forming a ring-shaped molecule generally increases considerably with the size of the ring. Assuming that a linear precursor must bind its ends together, extending its length diminishes the likelihood of the opposite ends approaching one another. In the absence of an external force, how then can a family of molybdenum oxide rings, several nanometers in diameter (quite large at the molecular scale), self-assemble? Miras et al. (p. 72, see the… Expand
