AbstractMetal-oxide hollow nanoparticles are appealing structures from the applied and fundamental viewpoints. The synthesis of bi-phase metal-oxide hollow nanoparticles has been reported based on galvanic replacement using an organic-based seeded-growth approach, but with the presence of H2O. Here we report on a novel route to synthesize hollow core-shell MnOx/FeOx nanoparticles by galvanic replacement without the use of H2O. We demonstrate that the role of H2O in the MnOx/FeOx galvanic replacement synthesis is to oxidize the MnO/Mn3O4 seeds into pure Mn3O4 in order to obtain the suitable oxidation state so that the Mn3+→Mn2+ reduction by the Fe2+ ions can occur. Thus, if no H2O is added, onion-like MnO/Mn3O4/Fe3O4 nanoparticles are obtained, while whenMn3O4 seeds are used, hollow core-shell MnOx/FeOx are achieved. Thus, a critical step for galvanic replacement is the existence of proper oxidation states in the seeds so that the chemical reduction by the shell ions is thermodynamically favoured.
