From molecular chemistry to molecular biology we stand on the treshold of a material revolution. In the 1920s, new industrial materials, such as metals, aluminium and acrylic glass were used as raw materials. Today, the developments in nanotechnology and computer-based technology enable insight into matter far beyond existing conceptions, namely into the world of molecules, atoms and subatomic particles. The "molecular revolution" (Félix Guattari, 1977) has already begun.
