Top-down approach for the synthesis of shape controlled nanoparticles
The thesis focuses on the facile synthesis of nanoparticles (NPs) by electrochemical erosion of different materials. NP can be immobilized on a support for applications in electro- and heterogeneous catalysis. Our unique approach involves applying an alternating voltage to a metal substrate placed in an electrolyte. The “green” method uses no further chemicals and allows controlling shape and size of the NPs adjusting parameters such as applied potential, frequency and electrolyte composition. Different characterization techniques such as TGA, XPS, XRD, SEM etc. will be used for the investigation of prepared materials and performance tests will be conducted. The contact persons are Dr. Elena Gubanova ( and Christian Schott (
