Nanopore electrode arrays have emerged as powerful tools to investigate electrochemistry at the single-entity level. In this review, we discuss their use to achieve gating of transport, permselectivity, electrochemical zero-mode waveguides for spectroelectrochemistry, and enhanced electrochemical processing.

In this article, we present living immunocyte templated micromotors that demonstrate significantly increased surface interactions and efficient removal of various targets across multiple scales, from ions to cells, compared to smooth synthetic material templated micromotors with the same size and surface chemistry.
