AbstractThe rational design and synthesis of anisotropic 3D nanostructures with specific composition, morphology, surface structure, and crystal phase is of significant importance for their diverse applications. Here, the synthesis of well-crystalline lotus-thalamus-shaped Pt-Ni anisotropic superstructures (ASs) via a facile one-pot solvothermal method is reported. The Pt-Ni ASs with Pt-rich surface are composed of one Ni-rich
