This is a maze of a deer caught in the headlights. The perpendicular lines that create the illusion of the deer are processed differently in the brain than a regular shape and you may find yourself thinking about this maze several times later on in the day. This is the mind attempting to process information that is common, but in a different way.

‘Intelligent’ oil droplet navigates chemical maze by Colin Barras

January 21, 2010

‘Intelligent’ oil droplet navigates chemical maze by Colin Barras

There’s some humbling news from the chemical world for anyone who has ever found themselves lost in a garden maze. A simple droplet of organic solvent can find its way through a complicated labyrinth with nothing more to go on than a slight pH difference.

Bartosz Grzybowski‘s team at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, used a common polymer to fashion a two-dimensional labyrinth some 2 centimetres on each side. They then flooded the maze with strongly alkaline potassium hydroxide solution, before placing a hydrochloric acid-soaked chunk of gel at the maze exit.

After about 40 seconds they placed a droplet of mineral oil containing hexyldecanoic acid at the maze entrance. The oil, which cannot mix with the potassium hydroxide solution, sits on the surface. But it remains still only for a matter of seconds – it soon begins tearing around the maze at speeds of up to 10 millimetres per second, sniffing out the shortest path to the acid-soaked gel, and solving the maze in the process.

“In the movie files you can see the droplet makes decisions,” says Grzybowski. “It goes left along the wrong path, decides there’s something fishy with that and so it reverses. It looks almost alive.”

Primitive intelligence

But while Grzybowski says the droplet displays behaviour that might be called “primitive intelligence”, there’s a simple chemical mechanism at work.

The droplet leaches its acid into the surrounding solution, losing hydrogen ions in a process known as deprotonation – a process that affects the surface tension of the droplet itself.

“But to the front and rear of the droplet [the surrounding solution] has a different pH,” he says, because of diffusion from the acid-soaked gel at the maze exit. Those tiny pH differences affect the amount of deprotonation that happens at the front and rear of the droplet, and this asymmetry sets up a surface tension gradient that forces the droplet into motion. “I would say the droplet is self-propellant,” he says.

Grzybowski’s team thinks that the behaviour could have implications for cancer treatments. They would like to develop micelles – aggregates of molecules such as balls of lipids – that can navigate pH gradients in the body. “A good reason for that is cancer is more acidic than the rest of the body,” Grzybowski says.

Slime mystery

But the chemical behaviour could also offer an explanation for the apparently intelligent behaviour of the slime mould Physarum polycephalum, which 10 years ago was shown to possess similar maze-solving abilities by Toshiyuki Nakagaki, now at Hokkaido University in Sapporo, Japan.

“The [new] finding is interesting since it gives an insight of possible physical mechanisms for Physarum to find a path in the maze,” Nakagaki says.

Kung fu monkeys turn tables on trainer

A Chinese man who trained monkeys martial arts to entertain

shoppers was shocked when they turned the tables on him.

Monkey fight back /Quirky China News

Lo Wung’s taekwondo monkeys have become a regular feature

outside a shopping centre in Enshi, Hubei province, where

they were trained to show off their martial arts skills on each other.

But one quick-thinking monkey saw his chance when Lo

slipped – and caught him with a perfect flying kung fu kick to

the head. The rest then joined in the affray.

Hu Luang, 32, who caught the incident on camera, said:

“I saw one punch him in the eye – he grabbed another by

the ear and it responded by grabbing his nose.

“They were leaping and jumping all over the place – it was

better than a Bruce Lee film.”

At one point the monkey trainer grabbed a staff to hit

the monkeys, only to find himself facing a stick-brandishing

monkey that cracked him over the head.

Lo only managed to get the monkeys under control

by tangling them up in the rope that had been

used to stop them running off.
