Abstract

The main research progress in core–shell noble metal nanostructures templated by gold nanorods (Au NRs) is summarized regarding synthesis, optical, and catalytic properties. Design and fabrication of core–shell hybrid nanostructures are demonstrated to be effective not only for optimizing and expanding intrinsic properties but also for creating novel localized surface plasmon enhanced optical and catalytic functionalities, thus providing great prospects in both fundamental research and potential applications.
