The changing state of our molecular world involves the making and breaking of bonds. Some researchers make chemical structures, others break them. Both approaches play an important part in the development of new drugs, detectors and materials. However, modern endeavors in research involve understanding and overlapping the interfaces of a myriad of disciplines. No more do scientific pioneers work alone. In this article, we shall give background of our selected scientific endeavors, and briefly show how, within chemistry, we can bond seemingly disparate disciplines together in unexpected ways in a collective attempt to deliver new materials and hybrid systems.
