The structure of monodisperse Sn/SnOx core−shell nanoparticles initially synthesized in ionic liquid and isolated from it was resolved using multiple characterization methods, yielding a crystalline and metallic Sn core and an amorphous shell composed of a first ultrathin layer of SnO under a second layer of SnO2. The quantification of each phase during the washing procedure highlighted the protective role of ionic liquid against oxidation, additionally to it stabilizing properties to generate small nanoparticles.
