Title: Nanoparticle Alloy Formation by Radiolysis


Here, this Review Article focuses on the highly versatile and effective method of radiolysis for the synthesis of nanoparticles (NPs). In particular, the formation of bimetallic and alloyed nanoparticles (or nanoalloys), including both known super alloys and novel alloy NP compositions, is described. This Review Article discloses the synthesis techniques that rely on ionizing radiation sources to create metallic NPs. Then, alloy NPs formed from combinations of transition metals and noble metals with varied structures are described. Some of the advantages of radiolysis including exquisite control over the size, monodispersity, and alloying structure of NPs are discussed. Additionally, methodologies that facilitate the synthesis or deposition of NPs onto a range of supports under inert environments are described. Finally, applications of metallic NPs formed by radiolysis are summarized.
