Organic nanoglue for tiny electronics

Researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in Troy, NY, have found that certain nanometer-long organic molecules can bond two surfaces that normally don’t stick together well. Surprisingly, the adhesive power increases when the nanoglue is exposed to very high temperatures.

Nano superglue: Organic molecules made of a chain of carbon and hydrogen atoms with sulfur (blue) at one end and silicon (green) at the other hold together copper and silicon dioxide. The molecules organize themselves and line up next to each other, and their adhesive strength increases at very high temperatures of up to 700 �C.Credit: Rensselaer/G. Ramanath
