Split personality: Triple-layered Ag@Co@Ni core–shell nanoparticles containing a silver core, a cobalt inner shell, and a nickel outer shell were formed by an in situ chemical reduction method (see figure). Ag0.04@Co0.48@Ni0.48 showed the most distinct core–shell structure. This catalyst, with non-noble double shells, has excellent catalytic activity for the hydrolysis of NH3BH3.
