Carbon nanospheres with highly monodispersed & conformal metal coating of carbon nanoparticles

Here is a very interesting paper on conformal coatings of various metal coated carbon nano particles not using ALD - so you should all be aware of this competition! The paper from Australian researchers has a Creative Commons open source and is given below. Thre paths for conformal coatings are reported and visualized in the the overview below.
