Abstract

original image

The cover image of this Special Issue of ChemSusChem shows how a large variety of nanostructures can be applied to reach sustainability goals. The shapes investigated are as diverse as mesoporous hollow shells, core–shell nanoparticles, overgrown trisoctahedra, and nanoporous particles, whereas their possible applications span from the dehydration of compounds obtained from biomass to the oxygen reduction reaction, CO stripping, and photocatalytic hydrogen production. More about the shape control of nanostructures, their use, and the papers in this special issue can be found in the Editorial by the guest editors Hong Yang and Yadong Yin on page 1781 (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300996).
