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.
Surfactant capsules propel interfacial oil droplets: an environmental cleanup strategy
Invited for this month’s cover is the group of Prof. Martin Pumera from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The cover picture shows pristine underwater coral. This image symbolizes the beauty of a clean environment ...
Surfactant capsules propel interfacial oil droplets : an environmental cleanup strategy
Coming clean: Polymer capsules of millimeter dimensions have been loaded with surfactants of negative, positive, or neutral charge, and their influence on the movement of oil droplets at the water/air interface was compared. ...
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 ...
