Hot Article: Nanoparticles for the photodegradation of methyl orange

In this CrystEngComm Hot article Zhimao Yang and co-workers from Xi’an Jiaotong University make copper oxide nanostructures with copper nanoparticles grown on the {111} facets via  a one-pot method.

The nanostructures they produce demonstrate excellent photocatalytic activity in the degradation of methyl orange.
