Introducing mechanochemistry

King’s College London Prof. Sergi Garcia-Manyes has been featured in Chemistry World, on its latest article on mechanochemistry, “Introducing mechanochemistry”. In the article, Garcia-Manyes explains how they induce chemical reactions by applying forces with an AFM on single chemical bonds in a molecule. This reaction can trigger the assembly of several molecules into a protein and its folding without the use of enzymes.
