23_21b/2013Metallic-Glass Nanostructures: Tunable Hierarchical Metallic-Glass Nanostructures (Adv. Funct. Mater. 21/2013)

Palladium-rich nanostructures with widely different morphologies are obtained by electrochemical processing of a nickel-palladium metallic glass. Metallic glasses are multicomponent alloys that exist in a wide range of chemical compositions and have a fully amorphous structure. On page 2708, Sundeep Mukherjee and co-workers report that starting with a homogeneous and isotropic amorphous surface, the morphology and chemistry can be modified to obtain hierarchical nanostructures with high catalytic activity.
