Pentagonal Molecules Could Lead to Self-Assembling Nanomaterials

The potential applications for this new approach include thin-film solar panels, which could see improvements in power density while continuing to require very little material for their fabrication. In addition to solar power applications, the results of this technology could also be used for ever smaller computer chips and for new video display technologies.
