Multicomponent nanoparticles containing two or more different types of functionalities show unique physical and chemical properties, leading to significantly enhanced performance. In this study, we have developed a new one-pot method to prepare Fe/FeS nanoparticles using dithionite at room temperature. The FeS precipitates on the Fe surface are formed by the interaction between dissolved iron species and hydrogen sulfide, one of the decomposition products of dithionite in solution.
