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


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