Superstar: Branched concave Au/Pd bimetallic nanocrystals (see picture) were synthesized in high yield by seed-mediated co-reduction of Au and Pd metal precursors in an aqueous solution at room temperature. The branches are concave and have high-index facets on their surfaces. These nanocrystals show superior electrocatalytic activity for the oxidation of ethanol and highly efficient SERS enhancement.
