Molecular nanotechnology (MNT) is a technology based on the ability to control and manipulate matter on the atomic and molecular level. It is sometimes referred to as advanced nanotechnology, molecular engineering, or nanoengineering. MNT is a multidisciplinary field that combines physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering at the nanoscale. Researchers in MNT are working to develop a variety of new technologies, including nanoscale devices, materials, and systems. One area of MNT research is nanorobotics, which involves the use of nanorobots to build and operate nanoscale devices and systems.
Some of the emerging trends in molecular nanotechnology and nanorobotics include the development of self-assembling systems, the use of DNA nanotechnology for drug delivery, and the use of nanorobots for surgery.
