Chemists synthesize molecular pretzels

Chemists have discovered a new class of molecules. In a new article, they outline pretzel-like molecules consisting of two molecular rings 'oppositely' coupled at a central carbon atom. The discovery is an important step towards synthesis of lasso peptides; new molecules with a potential use as medicines.
