  Abstract  
  Controlling motion of nanoscale systems is of fundamental importance for the development of many emerging nanotechnology areas. We review a variety of mechanisms that allow controlling rotary motion in nanoscale systems with numerous potential applications. We discuss control of rotary motion in molecular motors, molecular propellers of liquids, nanorods rolling on liquids, nanochannels with rotary switching motion, and self-assembly of functional carbonaceous materials, guided by water nanodroplets and carbon nanotubes.
