Today (Wednesday), the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced that it has decided to award this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart and Bernard L. Feringa. The French, Scottish and Dutch scientists won the prize for their development of molecular machines and miniaturized technology.

“They have developed molecules with controllable movements, which can perform a task when energy is added,” explained the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in its press release.

Yesterday, JOL reported that three British scientists were announced as the recipients of this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics. Later this week, the winners of the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced.
