Abstract:

Exploring across the current frontiers of chemical sciences there is vast uncharted territory to experience the joy of discovery.  Far beyond Nature’s design, the creative power of synthetic chemistry provides unlimited opportunities to realize our own molecular world as we experience every day with products ranging from drugs to displays.  In the art of building small we explore  the fascinating  field of molecular nanoscience .  Among the major challenges ahead in the design of complex artificial molecular systems is the control over dynamic functions and responsive far-from-equilibrium behaviour. A major goal is to gain control over translational and rotary motion. The focus is on my journey in the world of molecular switches and motors.
