Reversible Speed Control of One-Stimulus-Double-Response, Temperature-Sensitive Asymmetric Hydrogel Micromotors

Abstract

Soft, one-stimulus-double-response, thermo-sensitive, PNIPAm-based microgels are designed for controlled autonomous motion under stimuli. At higher temperatures, the motors with physically encapsulated catalase move faster, while motors in which catalase is chemically linked to PNIPAm ceased moving. The phenomenon is reversible over multiple cycles of temperature
