The right combination: Shape and composition are two important factors governing the catalytic properties of bimetallic nanocatalysts. Combining gold and palladium in a Au-core–Pd-shell structure coupled with an icosahedral morphology is shown to maximize catalytic performance for the selective oxidation of the biorenewable sources glycerol and 1,2-propanediol to glyceric and lactic acids, respectively.
