An unconventional outer-to-inner synthesis strategy for core (Au)-shell nanostructures with photo-electrochemical enhancement.

In this work, an outer-to-inner strategy is demonstrated to simultaneously fabricate core-shell NPs and assemble them onto a scaffold. Specifically, the shell material is deposited onto the scaffold first, and then a layer of the core material (Au) is covered on the shell surface. Finally, the core (Au)-shell nanoparticles (NPs) are formed on the scaffold… CONTINUE READING
