Pillar[5]arene Microcapsules Turn on Fluid Flow in Presence of Paraquat

Abstract

We report the fabrication of Pillar[5]arene (P[5]A) stabilized MCs via self-assmbly and crosslinking of P[5]A nanoaggregates at liquid-liquid interface. Thses MCs microengines turn on fluid flow in presence paraquat (PQ) due to “host-guest” molecular recognition. The microengines could be useful in designing non-mechanical micropumps, powerless microfluidics and diagnostic devices.
