Abstract: Biology has evolved many unique solutions to the problem of locomotion. In oceans, rivers, and lakes, there are numerous fish and mammal examples that can be used for inspiration for next generation underwater vehicles. These examples demonstrate capabilities—such as speed, acceleration, maneuverability, stealth, efficiencies, operating in all environments—that far outperform those of current man-made ...

The design of molecular crystals with targeted properties is the goal of crystal engineering. However, our predictive understanding of how a crystal’s properties relate to its structure, and how crystal structure in turn relates to molecular structure, are not yet sufficiently reliable to confidently design functional materials. One reason for this is that the crystal ... Read more about "Functional molecular materials discovery underpinned by crystal structure prediction"
