Nanostructures are of great interest in many current emerging of technology. This review is devoted to the progress made in the last decade in synthesis and applications of nanostructures. We present an overview of synthetic strategies for hollow structures. These strategies are broadly categorized into four themes, which include sell-established approaches, such as conventional hard-templating and soft-templating methods, as well as newly emerging methods based on sacrificial templating and template-free synthesis. The Review therefore focuses on the fundamentals of each process, pointing out advantages and disadvantages where appropriate. Strategies for generating more complex hollow structures, such as nonspherical hollow structures, are also discussed and reviewed.
