Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Nobel Laureates in Chemistry for 2016 have designed and synthesised molecular systems that can be taken out of equilibrium and into higher-energy states in which their movements can be controlled. Molecular machines will likely lead to nanorobots, sensors, storage devices and perhaps even artificial life.
