This is a molecular graphic representation of the supramolecular ribbon formed by self-assembly of denron rodcoil molecules. The molecular structure was assembled in Cerius[sup]2[/sup] and rendered using Softimage, both available in the VMIL. The image appeared in a news article published in the journal Science on 21 April 2000 (Science Vol. 288, p. 425).
