Tiny 'elevator' most complex nanomachine yet

Abstract:
Nanoscale elevators made of two interlinking organic molecules have been built and operated by US and Italian scientists. They are the most complex molecular machines built yet, consisting of a platform flanked by three rings that thread through three vertical rods. The force of an acid-base reaction is used to power the "elevator". The elevators could be used to tightly control chemical reactions, or as drug-delivery systems.
