The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced on October 5 that three scientists shared the 2016 Nobel Prize in chemistry.

The prize was awarded to Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart and Bernard L. Feringa for the design and synthesis of molecular machines.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in its official statement that 2016’s Nobel Laureates in Chemistry have taken molecular systems out of equilibrium’s stalemate and into energy-filled states in which their movements can be controlled.

This year’s prize amount is eight million Swedish krona (930,000 U.S. dollars), to be shared equally between the laureates.
