Harnessing surface-bound enzymatic reactions to organize microcapsules in solution
(American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2016-03)
By developing new computational models, we examine how enzymatic reactions on an underlying surface can be harnessed to direct the motion and organization of reagent-laden microcapsules in a fluid-filled microchannel. In ...
Convective flow reversal in self-powered enzyme micropumps
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2016-02-22)
Surface-bound enzymes can act as pumps that drive large-scale fluid flows in the presence of their substrates or promoters. Thus, enzymatic catalysis can be harnessed for "on demand" pumping in nano-and microfluidic devices ...
