The very small in an age of robots

The Very Tiny

Nanotechnology is going to change the way we live in ways that are hard to imagine. Manipulating molecules into tiny machines and new materials is a frontier that will revolutionise manufacturing, robotics, and life in general. Watch this space – it’s one of the most exciting things that’s happening in the second machine age.

Sorting Molecules with DNA Robots

A DNA nanorobot is programmed to pick up and sort molecules into predefined regions. Imagine a robot that could help you tidy your home: roving about, sorting stray socks into the laundry and dirty dishes into the dishwasher.

A direct path from methane to methanol

In a study published today in Science, researchers from Lehigh and Cardiff University have demonstrated a promising approach to using colloidal gold-palladium nanoparticles to directly oxidize methane to methanol with high selectivity in aqueous solution at mild temperatures.
