The anisotropically phase-segregated CoPd sulfide nanoparticles, named "CoPd nanoacorns", were spontaneously generated by reducing the corresponding metal precursors with 1,2-hexadecanediol in the presence of various alkanethiols. The CoPd nanoacorn consisting of crystalline Co9S8 and amorphous PdSx phases with the Co9S8 (001) plane at their interface was found to spontaneously form through the anisotropic growth of the Co9S8 phase after the generation of PdSx nanoparticles.
