Photosynthesis inspires molecular-assembly process

Abstract:
Nanotechnologists have recently succeeded in their attempts to build molecular systems based on highly efficient versions of the molecular "machine" that plants use to turn sunlight into energy. Such molecular-assembly machines could be used in many applications, including sensors and other electronic devices.One recent example is a chemical system devised at Sandia National Laboratory that creates a wide variety of complex nanostructures from platinum.
