Artificial micro-cinderella based on self-propelled micromagnets for the active separation of paramagnetic particles
In this work, we will show that ferromagnetic microjets can pick-up paramagnetic beads while not showing any interaction with diamagnetic silica microparticles for the active separation of microparticles in solution.
Biomimetic artificial inorganic enzyme-free self-propelled microfish robot for selective detection of Pb2+ in water
The availability of drinking water is of utmost importance for the world population. Anthropogenic pollutants of water, such as heavy-metal ions, are major problems in water contamination. The toxicity assays used range ...
Blood proteins strongly reduce the mobility of artificial self-propelled micromotors
Autonomous self-propelled catalytic microjets are envisaged as an important technology in biomedical applications, including drug delivery, micro/nanosurgery, and active dynamic bioassays. The direct in vivo application ...
