Molecular machines can be defined as devices that can produce useful work through the interaction of individual molecules at the molecular scale of length.
A convenient unit of measurement at the molecular scale would be a nanometer. Hence, molecular machines also fall into the category of nanomachines.
As our knowledge and understanding of thesenumerous machines continues to increase, we now see a possibility of using the natural machines, or creating synthetic ones from scratch, by mimicking nature.
