Self-propelled chemotactic ionic liquid droplets (1)
Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
The ability to move in response to an external stimulus is essential for many lifeforms. Certain cells such as bacteria, somatic cells, and other single cell or multicellular organisms move in response to chemical stimuli present in their environment. This phenomenon, known as chemotaxis, is crucial for many biological processes. Notably there are only few equivalents of similar chemotactic-driven “micro-vehicles” in the synthetic world.
