Solution combustion synthesis (SCS) is a relatively new method for synthesizing catalytic materials with many distinct advantages: simplicity of method, short reaction times, and the capability to regulate crystal lattice parameters and thereby the activity and selectivity of catalysts. Over the last years, SCS has been used for the production and study of a multitude of new catalytic materials. This review considers and discusses the recent developments and trends in SCS of nanocatalysts, while special attention is paid to the development and applications of nanostructured catalysts.
