Type: dataset
Subjects: Biophysics, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Evolutionary Biology, Ecology, Immunology, Inorganic Chemistry, Space Science, 39999 Chemical Sciences not elsewhere classified, 29999 Physical Sciences not elsewhere classified, microtubular engines, polycarbonate template membrane, 350 body lengths, hydrogen peroxide fuel, 8 μ m, efficient catalytic microengines
Highly efficient catalytic microtubular engines are synthesized rapidly and inexpensively using an electrochemical growth of bilayer polyaniline/platinum microtubes within the conically shaped pores of a polycarbonate template membrane. These mass-produced microtubular engines are only 8 μm long, are self-propelled at an ultrafast speed (of over 350 body lengths s–1), and can operate in very low levels of the hydrogen peroxide fuel (down to 0.2%). The propulsion characteristics and optimization of these microtubular engines are described, along with their efficient operation in different biological environments which holds great promise for biomedical applications.
