Molecular Motor Spins On Surface

Abstract:
By anchoring a chiral helical alkene onto a gold nanoparticle, chemists in the Netherlands have created the first light-driven molecular rotary motor attached to a solid surface. This mounted molecule, the researchers say, “might be a first step toward the construction of more elaborate and functional nanosized mechanical devices” and perhaps systems to exploit solar energy.
