Tiny microbots can clean up water

Tiny microbots can clean up water
IBEC researchers have developed a self-propelled tiny ‘microbot’ that can remove lead from contaminated water. Working with colleagues in Stuttgart and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead from industrial wastewater from a level of 1000 parts-per-billion to down to below 50 parts-per-billion in just an hour.
