Abstract

Bimetallic gold-ruthenium microrods are propelled in opposite directions in water by ultrasound and by catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. This property was used to effect reversible swarming, to stall and reverse autonomous axial propulsion, and to study the chemically powered movement of acoustically levitated microrods.
