Nanopropellers made by atomcraft

Abstract:
The power of synthetic chemistry for building nanostructures with exquisitely sculpted shapes has been demonstrated by a team of researchers in Germany, who have fashioned carbon propellers just 3 to 4.5 nm across. The work is striking in revealing how rational chemical synthesis can now be used to make rigid structures at scales large enough to function as components of nanoscale mechanical devices. The Mainz team has outlined a method for truly bottom-up, atom-by-atom synthesis of such nanostructures.
