52_02b/2013Back Cover: Highly Branched Concave Au/Pd Bimetallic Nanocrystals with Superior Electrocatalytic Activity and Highly Efficient SERS Enhancement (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2/2013)

The synthesis of highly branched concave Au/Pd bimetallic nanocrystals by seed-mediated growth at room temperature is described by A. W. Xu et al. in their Communication on page 645 ff. These star-shaped nanostructures have high-index facets on their surfaces, exhibit much better catalytic activity for the oxidation of ethanol than spherical Au/Pd catalysts, and show highly efficient SERS enhancement.
