Care about little things

We may not know much, but what we know we really do know – a lot about very little – things. I was to learn later that such levels of satisfying certainty of knowledge are a rarity in many other branches of science and in almost all areas of life in general.

Noncovalent interactions

In this part, we are focusing on the fundamental importance of non-covalent interactions in nature by illustrating molecular complexes from chemistry,  physics and the biosciences. High resolution microwave spectroscopy combined with pulse jet technique is used for the study of non-covalent interactions in different kinds of molecular clusters are briefly outlined. The roles of structure and geometry, stabilization energy, internal dynamics for molecular clusters are extensively discusse..
