Molecule makes electric motor

Abstract:
One difficulty in making machines at the scale of molecules is finding motors small enough to power them. Several research teams have come up with molecules that spin on command, but the question is how to harness that motion. Researchers from the University of California at Los Angeles and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel have brought molecular motors a significant step forward with a prototype that rotates nearly half way around and can be switched from one direction to the other.
