Molecular rotors have attracted considerable interest because of their rotational characters, which are essential for designing the advanced molecular motor systems. This review summarizes the recent advances in the unidirectional molecular rotors since 2003, especially highlighting their structure-activity relationships and applications. Moreover, future challenges and outlook are also presented.

Key words: molecular rotor, unidirectionality, structure-activity relationship, application, molecular motor
