Abstract

Enzymatic biofuel cells promise a great potential as a small power source, but their practical applications are being hampered by two serious problems: low power density and short lifetime. This review will describe recent advances of nanobiocatalysis that can potentially solve these two problems, together with some of novel in vivo applications of biofuel cells for harvesting electrical energy from the body fluids of living insects and animals.
