Twists and Folds: Extracting Molecular Function from Dynamic Molecular Shape

Whether they are in living cells or chemical reactors, molecules function according to their shape.  This lecture explored new ways to control the dynamics of molecular shape, and explained how this control can be used to achieve diverse functionality from the invention of new reactions to the construction of artificial analogues of biological communication devices.
