2016 Nobel Prize announced 

This handy infographic from Compound Interest details the fascinating work on molecular machines by Stoddart,  Sauvage and Feringa which has won them this year’s Nobel Prize for chemistry. 

I was fortunate enough to attend a talk by Sir Fraser Stoddart a couple of years ago,  and he is a terrific speaker who has carried out some really good work over the last few decades.  Molecular machines are an exciting and interesting research topic, which I have enjoyed learning about throughout my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, and I would definitely recommend taking a closer look at the research which earned them the prize.
