Advanced yolk-shell nanoparticles as nanoreactors for energy conversion
MetadataShow full item record
Yolk-shell structured nanoparticles are of immense scientific and technological interests because of their unique architecture and myriad of applications. This review summarizes recent progresses in the use of yolk-shell structured nanoparticles as nanoreactors for various chemical reactions. A very brief overview of synthetic strategies is provided with emphasis on recent research progress in the last five years. Catalytic applications of these yolk-shell structured nanoreactors are then discussed by covering photocatalysis, methane reforming and electrochemical conversion. The state of the art research and perspective in future development are also highlighted.
