Molecular Rotor Workshop 2017

30 March — 31 March 2017
IOCB Prague
Molecular Rotor Workshop 2017
This meeting is dedicated to fundamental research in the field of molecular rotors/motors, with a special focus on rotary motion in 2-D and 3-D materials. Plenary lectures will consist of experimental and theoretical contributions from organic, supramolecular, physical, and theoretical chemistry and physics. 

This workshop was made possible by generous support by the IOCB and by the Czech-French joint project 7AMB MOBILITY.
