STOCKHOLM, October 5. /TASS/. The 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016 has been awarded to French, British and Dutch-born scientists "for the design and synthesis of molecular machines," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said on Wednesday.
The prize worth 8 million Swedish crowns ($933,000) will be shared between Jean-Pierre Sauvage (University of Strasbourg, France), Sir J. Fraser Stoddart (Northwestern University, Evanston) and Bernard L. Feringa (University of Groningen, the Netherlands).
"They have developed molecules with controllable movements, which can perform a task when energy is added," the academy said in a statement. "The development of computing demonstrates how the miniaturization of technology can lead to a revolution. The 2016 Nobel Laureates in Chemistry have miniaturized machines and taken chemistry to a new dimension."
The awards ceremony will traditionally take place on December 10.
