Synthesis of a Nanocar with an Angled Chassis. Toward Circling Movement.

Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology, Rice University, MS 222, 6100 Main Street, Houston, Texas 77005. Nanocars with an angled chassis have been synthesized and imaged using scanning tunneling microscopy. These angled chassis nanocars were designed to further our understanding of the directional control and surface-rolling capabilities of this class of nanomachines. The alkylated carbazole inner core might enable the molecular scaffold to produce circular rolling motions of the nanovehicles on surfaces.
