A facile and rational approach to synthesize bimetallic heterogeneous tandem catalysts is presented. Using core–shell structures, it is possible to create spatially controlled ensembles of different nanoparticles and investigate coupled chemocatalytic reactions. The CO2 hydrogenation to methane and light olefins was tested, achieving a tandem process successfully.
