MOLECULAR NANOMACHINES
10308001011114MOLECULAR NANOMACHINESThe designing of molecules performing mechanical functions is one of the larger goals of nanoscience. The development of such molecular systems would lead to the creation of integrated nanodevices. Several molecular systems have been designed to perform translations and rotations. These have also been used as switches and logic gates. In this chapter, we provide an introduction to this area, purely from the point of view of synthetic molecular machines, while focusing on one class of chemical systems, namely rotaxanes. We also highl…
