Chemistry Nobel Prize Awarded to Sir James Fraser Stoddart
Lindsey East - October 5, 2016
Wyatt Technology congratulates its customer, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart of Northwestern University on sharing the Nobel Prize in Chemistry today with Bernard L. Feringa and Jean-Pierre Sauvage. They have developed molecules with controllable movements, which can perform a task when energy is added. We are delighted to see their work on nano-motors recognized as the building blocks for future molecular machines. Some of Professor Stoddart’s publications using our DAWN instruments may be found in our Bibliography. They include:
E. N. Guidry, J. Li, J. F. Stoddart, R. H. Grubbs., Bifunctional [c2]daisy-chains and their incorporation into mechanically interlocked polymers. Journal of the American Chemical Society 2007 129, 8944-8945.
M. A. Olson, A. B. Braunschweig, T. Ikeda, L. Fang, A. Trabolsi, A. M. Z. Slawin S. I. Khan, J. F. Stoddart., Thermodynamic forecasting of mechanically interlocked switches. Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry 2009 7, 4391-4405.
