Autonomous self-propelled tubular microrobots based on titanium dioxide decorated with platinum nanoparticles were developed by Villa et al. for the degradation of dental biofilm strains. The killing ability of these micromachines is attributed to their antibacterial activity and the continuous generation of microbubbles at the biofilm surface.
