Since when did carbon-carbon bonds get so pretty? This nanographene molecule, synthesized in Toulouse, France, shows us the beauty of ‘bond-order discrimination.’  This splendor in chroma is achieved by atomic force microscopy using a carbon monoxide functionalized tip. Luckily, like any work of art, you don’t have to understand it to enjoy it.
