Powering Nanodevices With Biomolecular Motors


Powering Nanodevices With Biomolecular Motors

Henry Hess et al. Chemistry.


Biomolecular motors, in particular motor proteins, are ideally suited to introduce chemically powered movement of selected components into devices engineered at the micro- and nanoscale level. The design of such hybrid "bio/nano"-devices requires suitable synthetic environments, and the identification of unique applications. We discuss current approaches to utilize active transport and actuation on a molecular scale, and we give an outlook to the future.
