Tailored magnetic carbon allotrope catalytic micromotors for ‘on-chip’ operations

Author affiliations

Abstract

Carbon allotrope micromotors are proposed as active components in lab-on-a-chip systems. Highly rough carbon black tubular engines are used for fluorescence detection operations. The potential of ultrafast lectin carbon nanonotube micromotors with an inner anti-biofouling layer for selective transport of sugar modified particles (as cell mimics) in human plasma is illustrated.
