NANOTECHNOLOGY UPDATE: Solid state synthetic molecular machine points to advanced nanotechnology.

Canadian chemists have induced a metal-organic framework to self-assemble and function as a molecular wheel on an axle in a solid state material. From a University of Windsor news article “Chemists break new ground in molecular machine research: “A graduate student and his team of researchers have turned the chemistry world on its ear by becoming the first ever to prove that tiny interlocked molecules can function inside solid materials, laying the important groundwork for the future creation of molecular machines.”

Faster, please.
