Rise of the machines: the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Part I

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearch

Abstract

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry recognised three scientists for pioneering work towards building molecular machines. Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Fraser Stoddart developed synthetic methodologies for making mechanical bonds, including catenanes and rotaxanes. Bernard L. Feringa, using these components and light-driven double-bond isomerisation, created the first molecular motor.
