Photo-chemopropulsion – light-stimulated movement of microdroplets

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The controlled movement of a chemical container by the light-activated expulsion of a chemical fuel, named here “photo-chemopropulsion”, is an exciting new development in the array of mechanisms employed for controlling the movement of microvehicles, herein represented by lipid-based microdroplets. This “chemopropulsion” effect can be switched on and off, and is fully reversible.
