TUTORIAL REVIEW | Chemical Society Reviews Recent progress on nanovehicles

By Yasuhiro Shirai, Jean-françois Morin, Takashi Sasaki, Jason M. Guerrero and James M. Tour


Nanovehicles are a new class of molecular machines consisting of a molecular scale chassis, axles, and wheels, that can roll across solid surfaces with structurally defined directions making them of interest to synthetic chemists, surface scientists, chemical engineers, and the general car enthusiast. In this tutorial review, following a brief introduction to the development of nanomachines, our recent progress on the nanovehicle project is presented including the design, synthesis, and testing of a series of nanocars, nanotrucks, and motorized nanocars. 1
