  Abstract  
  In this review, recent progress in the synthesis of hollow micro/nano particles through several novel strategies is presented. These synthetic strategies are mainly categorized into two classes according to the formation process of hollow structures: sacrificial template methods, such as Kirkendall effect, galvanic replacement reaction; template-free methods, such as chemical etching, Ostwald ripening, and self-assembly methods. Besides, there are also some strategies that appear to not involve the conventional mechanisms. Applications of hollow micro/nano particles in catalysis and chemical sensing are also summarized.
