Title: Pt–Ag cubic nanocages with wall thickness less than 2 nm and their enhanced catalytic activity toward oxygen reduction

Abstract

We report a facile synthesis of Pt–Ag nanocages with walls thinner than 2 nm by depositing a few atomic layers of Pt as conformal shells on Ag nanocubes and then selectively removing the Ag templateviawet etching.
