Complete palladium nanoshells were prepared by reducing palladium ions in a one-step reaction onto preformed silica cores of ca. 90 nm, which had been coated with successive layers of poly(diallyldimethyl ammonium chloride), poly(sodium styrenesulfonate) and finally poly(diallyldimethyl ammonium chloride) to reverse the zeta potential of the silica cores. This constitutes the first reported method for complete palladium nanoshell formation without the use of other metals as nucleation sites. The morphology of the nanoshell is of the rough discrete particle type rather than the smooth continuous type.
