Swimming microbots can remove pathogenic bacteria from water

Researchers designed 'two-faced' spherical particles to perform the task. One face is made with magnesium, which reacts with water to produce hydrogen bubbles to propel the microbots. The other face is made out of alternating iron and gold layers topped by silver nanoparticles.
