A Nano Propeller?
Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!
I'm not sure how this will fit into the construction world, but ya'll know I don't need much an excuse to post nano-tech updates.
E. Charles Sykes at Tufts University in Boston and colleagues turned to asymmetric butyl methyl sulphide, a sulphur atom with a chain of four carbons on one side and a lone carbon atom on the other. They anchored the molecule to a copper surface via the sulphur atom, producing a lopsided, horizontal "propeller" that is free to rotate about the vertical copper-sulphur bond (see diagram).
