A facile route to model catalysts: the synthesis of Au@Pd core–shell nanoparticles on γ-Fe2O3 (0001)
Nanoscale, 2013, Advance Article
Our latest paper is now available on line in the RSC Nanoscale journal. The paper describes a straightforward method of synthesising Au@Pd core–shell particles on a well characterised γ-Fe2O3 (0001) substrate by metal vapour deposition under ultra high vacuum. The resulting particles are probed by LEIS and STM and should provide an ideal route by which the chemistry of theses systems can be explored under ideal conditions.
