Hi everybody, we are back from the long summer break and I wanted to start the year with a very cool article which just came out.  They have taken a molecule of pentacene and provided a “clear as day” picture of it.  It is pretty fascinating to look at the ring structure and see how similar it is to the molecular models we have all been using since freshman chem.  Anywho, link is below, well worth a quick peek:

Good luck, and as always, happy reacting.
