In the ACS Nano paper, Weiss and his colleagues report enabling types of carboranes called carboranethiols to assemble into a layer attached to a gold surface through sulfur-gold bonds.

For describing the systems, analogy with benzene [pi]-bonding and aromaticity has been used, which in the case of carboranes is expressed as [sigma]-aromaticity [3].
In the study, Lee and his research team used carboranes to build new drugs designed to shut off a cancer cell's energy production, which is vital for the cell's survival.
With carboranes, Lee found that the drug is able to bind 10 times more powerfully.
The reason why these drugs bind stronger to their target is because carboranes exploit a unique and very strong form of hydrogen bonding, the strongest form of interactions for drugs," Lee said.
