Synthesis of colloidal metal and metal alloy nanoparticles for electrochemical energy applications

Abstract

This Review is focused on the recent progresses in the synthetic approaches to the precise control of structure, size, shape, composition and multi-functionality of metal and metal alloy nanoparticles. Many of these strategies have been developed based on colloidal methods, and to limited extent, the galvanic and other methods. The shape, size and composition often govern the chemical and catalytic properties that are important for electrochemical energy applications. The structure–property relationship and the design in controllable structures and morphologies for specific reactions such as oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) are emphasized.
