Title: DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF MOLECULAR NANOSYSTEMS
Abstract:
The invention relates to structural subunits called 'synthons' which are suitable for use in the design and manufacture of molecular nanostructures, machines, and devices. The synthon comprises polyhedra units and other species which exhibit rigid structural frameworks, the availability of stereo- and regiochemically directed substitution patterns, synthetic availability and accessability with substitutional control, diversity of available structural arrangements with said polyhedra units and related species, and connecting means which function to join adjacent synthons.
