Some researchers from England have come up with molecular glue after carefully studying Streptococcus pyogenes, otherwise known as flesh-eating bacteria. This bacterium uses a special protein to attach itself to human cells, which is what has been used in the molecular glue. When it came to measuring the bonds formed by this molecular glue, the measuring instrument broke even before the glue! The scientists are now looking to create selective glues whose unbelievably strong adhesive power will have many applications superglue Aerogel Sometimes called “frozen smoke
