Chemists at the University of Illinois have created a new machine which is capable of making molecules; essentially, a molecular 3D printer which assembles complex small molecules in an automated fashion.

The study’s lead chemist, chemistry professor and medical doctor Martin D. Burke, was quoted in a EurekAlert release as having said that the team of chemists “wanted to take a very complex process, chemical synthesis, and make it simple” and it would seem as if they’ve managed to just that, as their...
