The bottles were dropped in the Ganges river and some ended up thousands of kilometers away.

In this demonstration, the molecular solids glue supports the weight of a chemistry PhD candidate

Ordinarily, if you want to separate two objects that are glued together, harsh solvents or mechanical force are required – either one could damage the items. A new glue, however, releases its bond by simply turning to gas.
