We report a general approach to the synthesis of a large variety of nanocrystalline intermetallics and alloys with controllable composition, size, and morphology: these include Au-, Pd-, Pt-, Ir-, Ru-, and Rh-based bi- or tri-metallic nanocrystals. Our methodology provides a simple and convenient route to a variety of intermetallic and alloyed nanomaterials which are promising candidates for new catalysts.

An inkjet printer has been employed to print single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) films on cloth fabric and poly(ethylene terephthalate) substrates with controlled pattern location and controllable thickness. Two as-printed SWNT films can be sandwiched together with a solid polymer electrolyte to form a printable and wearable energy storage device.
