How an artificial molecular machine pumps in nanoscale

Nature often uses sophisticated strategies beyond our imagination. For example, biomolecules such as enzymes and nucleic acids form dynamic networks, in which they loosely associate with each other only when they need to perform a task together. Taking inspiration from such weak and temporary interactions,... click to read more

The World’s Longest Nanoscale Chain

A sheet of metal or wood is an inflexible one-dimensional material. Creating flexible one-dimensional structures from such hard materials is difficult, but can be done using chain-like structures made of interlocking of rings. Moreover, chain-like structures endow materials with ease of repairing any damage by... click to read more
