Noble metal alloys are important in large-scale catalytic processes. Alloying facilitates fine-tuning of catalytic properties via synergistic interactions between metals. It also allows for dilution of scarce and expensive metals using comparatively earth-abundant metals. RhAg and RhAu are classically considered to be immiscible metals. We show here that(More)
A microwave-assisted heating method allows for the convenient and reproducible synthesis of defined Au-Rh core-shell metallic nanoparticles with tuneable shell thicknesses. Nanoparticles with shells as thin as two Rh monolayers can be prepared, which are effective in vapour-phase hydrogenation catalysis at room temperature without the need for(More)
An extensive comparative study of the effects of microwave versus conventional heating on the nucleation and growth of near-monodisperse Rh, Pd, and Pt nanoparticles has revealed distinct and preferential effects of the microwave heating method. A one-pot synthetic method has been investigated, which combines nucleation and growth in a single reaction via(More)
The ATLAS experiment uses a complex trigger strategy to be able to reduce the Event Filter rate output, down to a level that allows the storage and processing of these data. These concepts are described in the ATLAS Computing Model which embraces Grid paradigm. The output coming from the Event Filter consists of four main streams: physical stream, express(More)
