Over the past few decades, chemical engineers have designed and built a large and varied range of artificial molecular machines. Movement at molecular level differs significantly from movement in the macroscopic world: molecular machines operate in a cyclone of thermal noise, and use structure-specific chemical reactions or external stimuli to carry out tasks. Matthijs Panman is working to determine how non-covalent interactions between the moving components of molecular machines determine their performance.
