Researchers Get First Images Of Molecular Changes During Chemical Reaction

Researchers Get First Images Of Molecular Changes During Chemical Reaction

Most of the research related to Chemistry is based on fairly indirect information. For instance, during a chemical reaction, we are able to infer in theory of the exact structural changes that molecules may undergo. But now, for the first time, researchers have been able to get actual images of these changes in molecular structures.
