Abstract—Nanotechnology is much discussed these days as a emerging frontier - a realm in which machines
operate at scales of billionth a metre. It is actually a multitude of rapidly emerging technologies based
upon the scaling down of existing technologies to the next level of precision and miniaturization.
Researchers are enthusiastic about its potential applications in the field of nanotechnology such as
energy, medicine, electronics, computing and materials. Of late, one of the emerging aspects dealing
nanotechnology in mechanical field is the internal combustion engine on a nano scale, which we
have chosen as our area of interest. Heat engines have evolved from external combustion engines
to internal combustion engines and the hot off the block is the nano internal combustion engine. This
picture gives an idea of the size of the nano internal combustion engine. If you observe, the length
from the back plate to washer is less than an inch. There are no exotic materials required It has high
precision, cost effective, high speed [up to 40000rpm ].The various applications can be spotted from
race cars to space crafts. It can also be applied to various fields like agricultural pump sets, industrial
applications, Hospitals, constructions civil engineering equipments etc., This paper further deals
with the history, construction of a nano IC engine, their merits and their future prospects. This paper
discuss about Nano IC engine at length
