Goal of this Ph.D. project is the synthesis and investigation of a unique class of light-activated systems with attempted use as fully synthetic propulsion units. The light-powered molecular motors whose basic principle is inspired by bacterial propulsion units form the functional heart of these systems. Special attention will be paid to the correlation of their geometric and physical properties.
