25_24b/2013Photochemistry: Solar-Powered Nanomechanical Transduction from Crystalline Molecular Rotors (Adv. Mater. 24/2013)

The back cover displays the futuristic application of molecular motors within an all-optical circuitry. On page 3324, Jacqueline M. Cole and Sven O. Sylvester demonstrate photochromic molecular transduction via an SO2 photo-isomerisation that drives molecular rotation in a neighbouring benzene ring. Image created using OLEX2 and Persistence of Vision Raytracer software.
