Abstract

Integrating functional self-propelled Zinc micromotors are created by coup­ling electrodeposition with hard dual-templating synthesis. The micromotors concurrently possess four robust functions including a remarkably high loading capacity, combinatorial delivery of cargoes, autonomous release of encapsulated payloads, and self-destruction. This concept could be expanded to simultaneous encapsulation of various payloads for different functionalities such as therapy, diagnostics, and imaging.
