Sticky situation: Researchers study, improve a small molecule that possesses an impressive ability to adhere in wet environments

Wet adhesion is a true engineering challenge. Marine animals such as mussels, oysters and barnacles are naturally equipped with the means to adhere to rock, buoys and other underwater structures and remain in place no matter how strong the waves and currents. Researchers have now studied and improved a small molecule that possesses an impressive ability to adhere in wet environments. —> Read More
