Autonomous molecular-level motion is ubiquitous in Nature, and will be a key constituent of the artificial complex molecular systems which will form the basis of future technologies.
Our research is focused on the design and development of autonomously operating molecular motors. Our approach involves the use of modern synthetic methodologies—transition metal catalysis, photoredox catalysis, enzymatic biocatalysis—to tackle the challenges posed by the development of these out-of-equilibrium functional molecular systems. A central aspect of our research programme is the development of cyclic reaction networks and their design, optimization, and analysis underpin our pursuit of controlled motion at the molecular level.
