3 Makers of ‘World’s Smallest Machines’ Awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Jean-Pierre Sauvage, J. Fraser Stoddart and Bernard L. Feringa were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry on Wednesday for the design and synthesis of “the world’s smallest machines” — molecules with controllable movements, which can perform a task when energy is added.

These “molecular machines” can be used for the development of new materials, sensors and energy storage systems, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in announcing the prize.
