Abstract

Pump it up: Insoluble polymer films that depolymerize to release soluble monomeric products when exposed to a specific analyte act as a microscale pump. Products formed as a result of depolymerization amplify the signal and create a concentration gradient that pumps fluids and insoluble particles away from the bulk polymer by a diffusiophoretic mechanism. These pumps can respond to a variety of analytes, from small molecules to enzymes.
