Molecule of the Week




Cubane is a hydrocarbon molecule that consists of eight carbons and eight hydrogens.  The carbons are arranged to form a cube, and one hydrogen is attached to each carbon.  Based on its structure, cubane was presumed to be very unstable because of the 90 degree bond angles formed between the carbons.  However, once formed, it is actually very kinetically stable.  Because of its structure, cubans is able to store large amounts of energy, making it a topic of interest in medicine and nanotechnology.
