Magnetic Liquid Marbles: A “Precise” Miniature Reactor
Source: Advanced Materials, Volume 22, Number 43, 16 November 2010 , pp. 4814-4818(5)
Abstract:Magnetic liquid marbles capable of hosting both aqueous and organic fluids may serve as new miniature chemical reactors. Chemical reactions can occur either within a single liquid marble or between two magnetic liquid marbles (as illustrated). The liquid marbles can also interact with external devices simply by opening and closing the powdery shell under a magnetic field.
