With the relentless rise of DNA nanotechnology's popularity, Emma Davies explores the role chemistry has played in its success.
As a supramolecular chemist, Hanadi Sleiman found herself strongly drawn to manmade DNA structures. 'We think of DNA as the most programmable structure there is. I thought - if it is - let me try to incorporate it into regular supramolecular structures,' says the professor at McGill University, Montreal, Canada. She hasn't looked back. 'What is really beautiful about DNA structures is the fact that you can control every single aspect of them,' she exclaims. http://tinyurl.com/7u8vygp
