Nanosize-controllable Cu, Ag, Pd, Ni, CuPd alloy and Cu-Ag bimetal encapsulated in inert carbon shells can be synthesized by carbonization of metal-cyclodextrin complexes with a remarkable capability of experimentally determining the size-dependent melting temperature depression of many metal or alloy nanoparticles.
