This book summarizes the solution-based methods for the preparation of noble metal-based composite nanomaterials, their characterization and potential applications in electrocatalysis. Besides the discussion on the intrinsic relationship between the catalytic properties and the physical /chemical effects in the composite materials, regarding to the creation of great opportunities and tremendous challenges due to the accumulation in nanocomposites, in the final section of this book, it makes some perspectives for the future development of the metal-based composite nanomaterials. This book not only provides the readers a systematic and coherent picture of this field, but also inspires rethinking of the current processing technologies: to move towards molecular-level control and regulation; and away from the ?top-down? approach and the stringent and expensive control inherent in conventional manufacturing processes.
