Liquid Metals: Liquid Metal Marbles (Adv. Funct. Mater. 2/2013)
On page 144, Kourosh Kalantar-zadeh, Arnan Mitchell, and co-workers introduce liquid metal marbles by encapsulating droplets of liquid metal in micro/nanoparticles that are insulating or semiconducting. The physical properties of the liquid metal marbles are investigated. The ability to form active electronic junctions using liquid metal marbles and its use as a highly sensitive, electrochemical-based, heavy metal ion sensor is demonstrated.
