New breakthrough in making on nanostructure materials by Japanese researchers.
Pyrroles, which are essential components of our red hemoglobin in our blood and as well as the green chlorophyll in plants.
Researchers led by Hiromitsu Maeda at Risumeikan University used pyrrole molecular motif in the construction of new nanostructured materials.
Pyrroles are structural rings containing one nitrogen and four carbon atoms.
