## New paper in Nature Chemistry

Congratulations to Dr Matthew Watkins on his paper published in Nature Chemistry, one of the highest-ranking journals! In this paper the authors describe how molecular nanowires up to one micrometer long were grown on insulating materials using a novel radical polymerisation process. This addresses one of the key issues in molecular electronics – how to produce […]
