Core-shell nanoparticles (NPs) have emerged as a type of important nanomaterial for various applications. The challenge in the preparation of core-shell NPs is to find a simple, cost-effective and less time-consuming strategy with minimum environmental impact. The consolidation of multiple preparation steps into one step represents a new green synthesis pathway in chemistry and materials science. In this review, we provide an overview of the recent developments in the fabrication of core-shell NPs through one-step/pot methodologies. A variety of one-step/pot preparation methods are presented, discussed and compared, followed by the summary and outlook of this emerging area.
