Artificial molecular-level machines: which energy to make them work?
TLDR
A number of elementary functions performed by molecular-level machines are illustrated, and more complex ones are foreseen. Expand
Acid−Base Controllable Molecular Shuttles†
Two novel [2]rotaxanes, comprised of a dibenzo[24]crown-8 (DB24C8) macroring bound mechanically to a chemical “dumbbell” possessing two different recognition sitesviz., secondary dialkylammoniumExpand
Amphiphilic Bistable Rotaxanes
Two molecular shuttles/ switches-a slow one and a fast one- in the shape of amphiphilic, bistable [2]rotaxanes have been synthesized and characterized. Both [2]rotaxanes contain a hydrophobic,Expand
Simple Mechanical Molecular and Supramolecular Machines: Photochemical and Electrochemical Control of Switching Processes
Photochemical control of a self-assembled supramolecular 1:1 pseudorotaxane (formed between a tetracationic cyclophane, namely the tetrachloride salt of cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene), andExpand
Photoinduced electron transfer in a triad that can be assembled/disassembled by two different external inputs. Toward molecular-level electrical extension cables.
TLDR
A self-assembling supramolecular system which mimics, at a molecular level, the function performed by a macroscopic electrical extension cable is designed, synthesized, and investigated. Expand
FUELS FROM SOLAR ENERGY. A DREAM OF GIACOMO CIAMICIAN, THE FATHER OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY
Giacomo Ciamician was professor of Chemistry at the University of Bologna from 1889 to 1922. Inspired by the ability of plants to make use of solar energy, he was the first scientist to investigateExpand
Redox-controllable amphiphilic [2]rotaxanes.
With the fabrication of molecular electronic devices (MEDs) and the construction of nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMSs) as incentives, two constitutionally isomeric, redox-controllable [2]rotaxanesExpand
