Herein, we developed a one-pot, surfactant-free approach to obtain a PdPtAu@Pd core@shell catalyst for the photocatalytic methanol oxidation reaction. By virtue of its dimensions, conjunction architecture and robust core@shell construction, 0D@2D PdPtAu@Pd exhibited a superior catalytic performance, with a mass activity 2.3- and 6.7-times higher than that of Pt/C and Pd/C catalysts, respectively.
