A bioinspired micromotor based on sunflower pollen grains is presented by Martin Pumera and co-workers in article number 1702338. Processing of the pollen yields spike-covered, monodisperse sporopollenin exine capsules. Bubble generation on the spiky surface propels the capsules to the end of cargo transport or dynamic decontamination of heavy metals.
