One of the more complex and time consuming tasks that researchers perform in the laboratory is the synthesizing of complex small molecules. Sometimes it can take years for a chemist to figure out how to build the molecule and describe its functionality. A group of researchers from the University of Illinois have created a machine that aims to make the process of creating these complex molecules much easier.

The machine is able to assemble a vast range of complex molecules at the push of a button according to the inventors. Complex small molecules are used extensively in research of all sorts of scientific fields. These complex small molecules are used in medical research to create medications and in lo...
