Scientists use cotton to create glucose-powered cell for implants

A team of researchers from Korea University and Georgia Tech developed a cotton fiber-based, glucose-powered biofuel cell to provide continuous power for implantable medical devices. The team reported in Nature Communications that the fuel cell converts chemical energy from glucose in the body into electrical energy through gold nanoparticles assembled on cotton fiber -- a process that improves the fuel cell's efficiency.
