Event description

Description

The International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICONN) 2018 will open its doors to the public for one session, allowing the community a glimpse into the life of one of the world's greatest minds in science, Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry 2016, Sir Fraser Stoddart.

Fraser received this prestigious award for his 1991 development of a “rotaxane,” a structure in which a molecular ring is threaded onto a thin molecular axle, and for demonstrating that the ring could move along the axle. That achievement led to innovations such as a molecular lift, a molecular muscle and a molecule-based computer chip.

Find out more about how this innovative organic chemist acheived this success in his talk entitled "My Journey to Stockholm".
