Abstract

This work presents a novel prototype of an electrolytic pump that uses a platinum (Pt) coated-nickel mesh in the pumping chamber for increasing the recombination rate electrolysis products. The Pt coated-nickel mesh that acts as a catalytic reforming element is able to significantly reduce the pulsed pumping period of the pump, resulting in a more controllable system. Our presented electrolytic pump can provide the cyclical actuation required for a solid drug in reservoir delivery system and shows potential application in the field of drug delivery.
