Engineering with microreactors and nanoreactors

Abstract:
Lock one or more molecules up within a cage of nanometer dimensions. Take this ‘nanocontainer’ to the desired spot and free the molecules. Or keep them locked up for a while and introduce other molecules into the container, for chemical reactions to occur inside. By using polymers containing iron, it is possible to make intelligent containers of which the access of molecules can be regulated in a chemical way.

A research team led by prof Julius Vancso of the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente in the Netherlands has succeeded in fabricating these nanocontainers. The scientists foresee many exciting applications, including ultrafast reactions in nano chemistry.
