Molecular Nanotechnology (MNT) Molecular Nanotechnology (MNT) is a technology that is used to design complex structures through mechanosynthesis process, in order to obtain the correct atomic specifications. In this technology, complex products are built using nanomachines. This process is not at all similar to nanomaterials as it is based on molecular manufacturing. The mechanosynthesis process used for this technology will be assisted by complex molecular machine systems. The whole process of molecular nanotechnology would include the combination of physical...

Molecular Self-assembly When the molecules of a material have the capability to arrange itself without the help or guidance of another source, the method is called molecular self-assembly. Molecular self-assembly is categorized into two. They are – Intramolecular self-assembly and Intermolecular self-assembly Intermolecular self-assembly is more commonly known as molecular self-assembly and intramolecular self-assembly is commonly known as folding.

Nanotechnology This article describes the definition, history and concept of Nanotechnology in detail. Technology has enabled scientists to work in a field so small that even cannot be identified with the help of microscopes, called Nanotechnology. It is also known as nanotech and deals in developing small sized devices or materials between 1 to 100 nanometres in at least one dimension. To make devices so small in size, the application of quantum mechanical effects is very important. Related Article...
