Abstract

original image

Oxidative Dekontaminierung: Eine effektive Strategie zur oxidativen Neutralisierung von Organophosphor-Nervengiften basiert auf Mikromotoren mit Eigenantrieb. Die Bewegung vieler Motoren durch eine Peroxid-aktivierte kontaminierte Lösung verbessert die Dekontaminierungseffizienz im Vergleich zu gewöhnliche Neutralisierungsprozessen von chemischen Kampfstoffen.
