Abstract

original image

Kurvige Würfel: Konkave Palladiumnanowürfel mit hoch indizierten Flächen {730} wurden durch gesteuertes Überwachsen kubischer Pd-Keime in hoher Reinheit erhalten. Die konkaven Nanowürfel sind sowohl bei der Elektrooxidation von Ameisensäure als auch bei der Suzuki-Kupplung katalytisch viel aktiver als übliche Pd-Nanowürfel mit {100}-Flächen.
