Abstract

Modern synthetic chemistry has reached the point where it is possible to prepare small molecules to almost any structure. The ability extends the control to the next-larger level, seeking methods to assemble these single molecules into supramolecular assemblies consisting of many molecules arranged in a well defined manner. The protein synthesis using Nanotechnology utilize the concepts of molecular self-assembly and supramolecular chemistry to automatically arrange themselves into some useful conformation through a bottom-up approach. The molecules can be designed so that a specific conformation or arrangement is favored. Thus, two or more components can be designed to be complementary and mutually attractive so that they make a more complex and useful whole. Such bottom-up approaches should be able to produce structures in parallel and much cheaper than top-down methods, but could potentially be overwhelmed as the size and complexity of the desired assembly increases. The challenge for nanotechnology is whether these principles can be used to engineer novel constructs in addition to natural ones.
