New machine for 3-D printing of small molecules

According to Live Science report, a new device developed by researchers could serve as the 3-D printer for chemistry experts. According to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the machine can assemble complex molecule structures according to the instructions and this could help develop new drugs and other technologies in which small molecules are required.

According to Burke, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Early Career Scientist, "We wanted to take a very complex process, chemical synthesis, and make it simple. Simplicity enables automation, which, in turn, can broadly enable discovery and bring the substantial power of making molecules to nonspeci...
