M. W. Chen and co-workers present a novel gold-decorated nanoporous copper (Au@NPC) core–shell composite on page 2279. Thin gold shells with controllable thickness are homogeneously deposited onto the internal surfaces of 3D NPC via a spontaneous displacement reaction while NPC is utilized as a reduction agent as well as template and substrate. The inexpensive core shell nanostructure exhibits significant electrocatalytic activity for oxidation methanol and high nonenzymatic sensitivity in detecting glucose.
