Researchers Achieve 'Olympic Ring' Molecule Breakthrough Just in Time for Winter Games

Florida State University

More than 7,000 miles away from the snowcapped peaks of PyeongChang, scientists from FSU’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry unlocked a novel strategy for synthesizing a highly versatile molecule called olympicene — a compound of carbon and hydrogen atoms named for its familiar shape. “An olympicene is a molecule consisting of five rings that resemble the shape of the famous Olympic rings,” said Cottrell Family Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Igor Alabugin. “This new process for synthesizing these molecules offers a unique tool for the preparation of structurally precise carbon-rich nanostructures.”

This study examines the association of commonly-prescribed post-concussive medications, namely gabapentin and tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), to symptom reduction after a concussion.
