Fouling of surfaces leads to performance degradation in many energy-intensive industrial processes, but the present solutions are either too complicated to be routinely used or incomplete for eradication. Here we propose and demonstrate that carbon-containing deposits can be catalytically wiped out in an efficient way by roaming palladium nanoparticles with extreme shape flexibility at relatively low temperatures. Surprisingly, during their dramatic liquid-like migrations, these particles could…

On the Role of Water Vapor and Process Gasses in Low-Temperature Gold-Catalyzed Graphene Etching

The ability to pattern graphene at low temperatures in a scalable manner is one of the greatest challenges facing graphene industrial adoption today. We demonstrate a simple method for

Carbothermal shock synthesis of high-entropy-alloy nanoparticles

A general route for alloying up to eight dissimilar elements into single-phase solid-solution nanoparticles, referred to as high-entropy-alloy nanoparticles (HEA-NPs), by thermally shocking precursor metal salt mixtures loaded onto carbon supports is presented.
