Scientists create Olympic rings-shaped molecule ‘olympicene’

Scientists

Amid the ongoing 2018 Winter Games in South Korea, Florida State University scientists have developed a new process to create the ‘olympicene’ molecule, resembling the Olympic rings. The first olympicene molecule was unveiled by British chemists before the 2012 London Olympics. “Publishing this new synthesis just in time for the Winter Olympics is indeed a fortunate coincidence,” said researchers.
