What is mechanochemistry?
If you read the detailed literature about technical processes underlying molecular manufacturing, you may come across the terms 'mechanochemistry' or 'mechanosynthesis'. What do these big words mean?
Definitions by committee are evolving at Wikipedia, which we've linked above. But here is CRN's simple explanation (prepared by Chris Phoenix, Director of Research) of how mechanochemistry works...
