Mutating Molecules: A New Kind of Colour Pixel

Mutating Molecules: A New Kind of Colour Pixel.

Click the link for an interesting post detailing how molecules can be used as coloured ‘pixels’, from the ‘Cool Story Bromine’ blog.

There’s a nice bit of research here using the very common phenomenon of keto-enol tautomerism, which is key to many aspects of Organic chemistry.

It will be very interesting if this kind of chemistry allows images to be resolved to the molecular level, and I’m excited to see what comes out of this.

Cool stuff!
