A facile one-step Stöber route to synthesize high-quality core–shell–shell templates is reported for the fabrication of Au@carbon yolk–shell nanostructures. The converted Au@carbon yolk–shell nanostructures exhibited high catalytic performance as illustrated by the reduction reaction of o-nitrophenol.
