The University of Houston& Rice University scientistsare working toward revolutionizing the machines to top the 2ndworldwide“Nanocar Race”. However, the race has been postponed to 2022 and thus, the researchers have to waitmore than expected. The latest design has been clearly mentioned in the “Journal of Organic Chemistry” of the American Society. The researchers Anton Dubrovskiyfrom the University of Houstonand James Tour of Rice University advanced the cars by adding in tert-butyl-based wheels that will help direct the path and the compound is placed on the gold surface having pylons of array of atoms.

Furthermore, the new nanocars have permanent dipole moments such that the speed and drivability on the road is increased. The dipole moments help generate electric field that gradients help propel the vehicle. This new design is likely to be advanced in majority of the nanocars in the near future.In the new approach the researchers used more than 100 atoms to meet upto the updated standards. The modular process was used to produce the new cars with tert-butyl, adamantyl wheels, or a combination of the two. The use of 114 atoms helped the researchers create nanocars with minimum weight that meet cover all the race requirements.

The University of Graz have now shifted their focus toward nanocars built using expertise in scanning tunneling microscope-directed manipulations by the Rice researchers. The basic idea is to revolutionize the manufacturing of nanomachines such as nanofabrication and molecular-level cargo. The molecular-scale nanocar design is currently being explored to elevate the field of nanomanipulation. There are hopes that the racers can use the internet using scanning tunneling microscopes from their home labs to control on tracks. The researchers are thus waiting for the pandemic to get over to test the new version in the real-world.
