This week Reactions takes a look at some byte-size science. Nanomachines have some very tiny chemistry at play with some big results. Nanomachines – including nano-sized motors, rockets and even cars – are many orders of magnitude smaller than a human cell, but they have huge promise. In the future, they could deliver drugs anywhere in the body, clean up oil spills and might even be used as artificial muscle cells.

Special thanks to the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Special Grant Program in the Chemical Sciences for funding this episode.
