Integrated motion of molecular machines in supramolecular polymeric scaffolds

Author affiliations

Abstract

Versatile synthetic procedures enable the incorporation of bistable molecular machines (rotaxane-type and catenane-type) into supramolecular polymeric scaffolds with the aim of mimicking nature and developing functional nanomachinery so as to obtain macroscopic changes in material properties by transforming motions at the molecular level. In this minireview, we highlight the recent progress in the new emerging field of integrated motion of molecular machines in supramolecular polymeric scaffolds.
