Remarkable! I wonder how long it will be before this technique will be generally available? Perhaps they should be in line for another Nobel in chemistry!

Some nice work in R&D, but was dismayed by the use of this wording - "IBM now for the first time can differentiate individual bonds in molecules," . Shouldn't they speak for the entire scientific community?

Note that the molecule (see left image) was synthesized at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in Toulouse, France.

IBM emphasized that there work is still in the lab, but Nobel Prize status will depend on how reproducible their work is in other labs, and the utility of new results obtained by using this technique.

IBM's ability to image individual molecular bonds was demonstrated by Leo Gross, Fabian Mohn, Nikolaj Moll, Bruno Schuler, and Gerhard Meyer at IBM, in collaboration with Alejandro Criado, Enrique Guitián and Diego Peña at the Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, and André Gourdon at CNRS, in Toulouse Cedex, France.
