Today, chemists make molecules by solution chemistry. We have seen what a
liquid looks like in our first simulation, with molecules bumping and tumbling and
wandering around. Just as assemblers can make chemical reactions occur ...
He pictured making molecules, pointing clearly in the direction taken by the
modern concept of nanotechnology: "But it is interesting that it would be, in
principle, possible (I think) for a physicist to synthesize any chemical substance

"Will Chemical Instability Mess Things Up?" Chemists perform chemical reactions
, which means that they tend to work with reactive, unstable molecules. Many
molecules, though, can sit around in peace with their neighbors for millions of
