(Figure Presented) Playing a dual role as a catalyst that destabilizes Fe nanoparticles to form soluble precursors in situ and as a catalytic center for nanorod growth allows Pd nanoparticles to transform Fe nanoparticles and a P source into Fe2P nanorods (see scheme). The diameter and length of the Fe2P nanorods can be finetuned by means of the diameter of the Pd nanoparticles and the Fe/Pd ratio, respectively.
