Mobius molecules with a twist

Mobius molecules with a twist – Glasgow-based chemists have managed to make a chiral molecule from achiral starting materials by using a simple Mo4O8 unit to introduce a twist to the cluster and turn it into a Möbius strip. The cluster is based on electrocatalytic oxothiomolybdates, so the level of structural control the group has achieved could allow for much greater adjustment of structural and electronic properties.
