Abstract

A Fischer-mans friend: The nanostructuring of iron and cobalt oxides with core–shell structures through rational design allows the development of a synthetic approach to a very efficient, cost-effective, scalable, and selective catalyst for Fischer–Tropsch synthesis and for the conversion of syngas into liquid fuel.
