Perspective: nanomotors without moving parts that propel themselves in solution.

Abstract

Self-propelled nanomotors use chemical energy to produce directed motion. Like many molecular motors they suffer strong perturbations from the environment in which they move as a result of thermal fluctuations and do not rely on inertia for their propulsion. Such tiny motors are the subject of considerable research because of their potential applications… (More)
