Mechanochemical Pumping as an Adjunct to Diffusion in Oxygen Transport
The interconversion of mechanical and chemical energy has been recognized for many years. Some examples of conversion of mechanical energy to chemical energy are the decrease in molecular weight of rubber due to milling (1) and the initiation of styrene polymerization by fracturing sodium chloride crystals. Muscle contraction is an example of transformation of chemical to mechanical energy.
