Abstract: An efficient, solvent-free, environmentally friendly, RAPET (Reactions under Autogenic Pressure at Elevated Temperature) synthetic approach is discussed for the fabrication of core-shell nanostructures. The semiconducting, magnetic or superconducting nanoparticles are encapsulated in a carbon shell. RAPET is a one-step, thermal decomposition reaction of chemical compound (s) followed by the formation of core-shell nanoparticles in a closed stainless steel reactor. The representative examples are discussed, where a variety of nanomaterials are trapped in situ in a carbon shell that offers fascinating properties.
