August 16th, 2011
The presentation examined units which possesses strong intermetallic interaction within complex molecules. Results were presented for a review of the electrochemical response during layering of units due to weak interaction. The award recognized how the research was able to control the distance of the layering interval and achieve regular alternate control of the interaction between layers. This control was made possible by constructing a coordinated bond in the layer film structure.
