Generation of catalytically active materials from a liquid metal precursor

Author affiliations

Abstract

A facile route to prepare catalytically active materials from a galinstan liquid metal alloy is introduced. Sonicating liquid galinstan in alkaline solution or treating it in reducing media results in the creation of solid In/Sn rich microspheres that show catalytic activity toward both potassium ferricyanide and 4-nitrophenol reduction.
