DEC 19 | AN EVENING WITH CHEMISTRY NOBEL PRIZE JEAN PIERRE SAUVAGE
ORT Library, 1201 Ortega ave, san Francisco
From 6 to 8pm
Chemistry Nobel prize Jean-Pierre Sauvage will be our guest for a "Conversation scientifique" at the Library of our Ortega campus. He will be talking about molecular motors that play an essential role in a lot of processes from synthesis and hydrolysis of ATP to material transport, striated muscle function... Over the past decade, a number of synthesis laboratories have been developing complex, fully artificial molecular systems that can behave like very primitive machines or motors.
MEET JP SAUVAGE
In 2016, Jean-Pierre Sauvage, along with Fraser Stoddart and Ben Feringa, was awarded Nobel prize in Chemistry for the design and synthesis of molecular machines. In 1983, with his CNRS team, he had managed to interweave two molecular rings forming a chain that he named a catenane and later managed to chemically control the rotation of a similar molecule.
