A general template strategy (see figure) has been developed for fabrication of a new class of nanostructured materials consisting of Au (Pt)–silica multicore shell particles, which are suitable for studies of Ostwald ripening in confined microspaces and in situ observation of particle growth. This work is expected to motivate further in situ studies of confined crystal growth, while the materials are promising for use in controlled delivery of therapeutics and as building blocks for photonic crystals.
