A breakthrough in the design of molecular motors

IECB team leader Ivan Huc, in collaboration with a Chinese team from the Beijing National Laboratory for Molecular Sciences, have developed the first molecular piston capable of self-assembly. Their research represents a significant technological advance in the design of molecular motors. Such pistons could, for example, be used to manufacture artificial muscles or create polymers with controllable stiffness. These results were published on the 4th of March 2011 in the journal Science.
