3D printer that could print billions of organic compounds

Martin D Burke and his team from the University of Illinois have studied and synthesized small molecules with protein-like structures for quite some time. These molecules are in fact the basis of the human body’s regulation of biological processes and even make up for the majority of drugs taken by us.

Last week, Sciencemag.org reported that Dr Burke and his team developed a 3d printer for chemicals which could simplify the very complex process of chemical synthesis and the creation molecules.

3D printer that could print billions of organic compounds

The “3d printer for chemicals” can break down complex molecules to its basic chemical building blocks.

The machine is able to identify and analyse each and every different blocks of the molecules which allows the machine break down the complicated structure of the molecules.

The machine is then able to connect all the chemical blocks together one by one, while releasing the unwanted byproducts simultaneously to manage over 200 chemical building blocks.

The ability of the machine to manage these blocks enables it to control thousands of molecules, thus making it possible for the machine to print billions of organic compounds.
