DESCRIPTION KEY FOR SUPERBOWL MOLECULE IMAGES

Superbowl molecule movie:

The movie shows a top view of a three-dimensional representation of the superbowl molecule, tetrabromo-superbowl (C268H320O52 Br4). The carbon atoms are represented in blue, the hydrogens in white, the oxygens in red, and the bromine atoms in brown. The four gold "guests" entering the superbowl molecule represent ethanol molecules, while the orange/green sphere is a chloroform molecule. The three-dimensional model represents the molecule's real structure (based on its X-ray crystal structure), but the movements shown are artificial.

Superbowl molecule (blue highlights):

The image shows a top view of a three-dimensional molecular model of the superbowl molecule, tetrabromo-superbowl (C268H320O52 Br4 ), holding five "guest" molecules, which are colored gold. Carbon atoms are represented in blue, the hydrogens in white, oxygens in red, and bromine atoms in brown. The "guests" located inside the superbowl molecule represent four ethanol molecules (gold) located at the sides and one chloroform molecule (gold) located at the base. The three-dimensional model represents the molecule's real structure (based on its X-ray crystal structure).

Superbowl molecule (green highlights):

The image shows a top view of a three-dimensional molecular model of the superbowl molecule, tetrabromo-superbowl (C268H320O52 Br4 ), holding five "guest" molecules, which are colored gold. Carbon atoms are represented in green, hydrogens in white, oxygens in blue, and bromine atoms in brown. The "guest" molecules located inside the superbowl molecule represent four ethanol molecules (gold) located at the sides and one chloroform molecule (gold) located at the base. The three-dimensional model represents the molecule's real structure (based on its X-ray crystal structure).
