News from the Jasti Lab

UO chemist Jasti aims to put his nanohoops into future devices

When Ramesh Jasti set out to make tiny organic circular structures using carbon atoms, the idea was to improve carbon nanotubes for use in electronics or optical devices. He quickly realized, however, that his technique might also roll solo.
