Abstract

According to the 2016 Chemistry Nobel Prize Committee, “We are at the dawn of a new industrial revolution of the twenty-first century, and the future will show how molecular machinery can become an integral part of our lives". Perhaps the best way to appreciate the technological potential of controlled molecular-level motion is to recognise that nanomotors and molecular-level machines lie at the heart of every significant biological process. Prof. David Leigh is one of the pioneers of synthetic molecular machinery. In this lecture, he will outline the latest developments from his lab in illustration of Arthur C. Clarke's assertion that 'Significantly advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic!"
