Research summary

Autonomous molecular-level motion is ubiquitous in Nature, and will be a key constituent of the artificial complex molecular systems which will form the basis of future technologies. While many artificial molecular systems have been reported that exhibit large amplitude conformational changes in response to external stimuli (e.g. light irradiation, change in pH), systems that operate under out-of-equilibrium regimes, i.e. continuously converting energy to work or motion, have remained elusive.

Our research is focused on the design and development of artificial molecular machines that exhibit autonomous chemically-fuelled directional motion at the molecular level. We are exploring a new approach ...
