Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Organized self-assemblies of Janus catalytic motors, induced by hydrophobic surface interactions involving multiple motor/motor and motor/non-motor particles, display controlled coordinated self propulsion. The influence of the self-assembled structures upon the motion behavior is investigated. A dynamic 'on-the-fly' assembly is observed during the continuous movement of the individual components, along with changes in the motion behavior. Organized assemblies of multiple motor/non-motor particles are also illustrated towards optimal cargo transport. Such controlled structures and motion of chemically-powered Janus micromotor assemblies hold considerable promise for the creation of nanomachines that perform collective tasks.
