A facile route to prepare catalystically active materials from a galinstan liquid metal alloy is introduced. Sonicating liquid galinstan in alkaline solution or treating it in reducing media results in the creation of solid In/Sn rich microspheres that show catalytic activity toward both potassium ferricyanide and 4-nitrophenol reduction.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
