Artist's Rendering of Predicted Self-assembly Process for Hexaphenylbenzene Nanocube (video) University of Tokyo Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption The six snowflake-shaped molecules of hexaphenylbenzene self-assemble into a nanocube so quickly that researchers led by Professor Shuichi Hiraoka at the University of Tokyo cannot monitor the process. This artist's rendering demonstrates a prediction of the self-assembly process. Credit Video by Shuichi Hiraoka CC-BY-ND-SA. Usage Restrictions Video by Shuichi Hiraoka CC-BY-ND-SA.
