Ordered single-walled hollow aluminogermanate (ALGE) nanospheres (NSs) with average monodisperse diameters of 5 nm have been synthesized for the first time using simple pH control. This involved basification of the ALGE precursors (having an Al/Ge ratio of 1.33) to a pH value of 13, followed by immediate acidification to a pH value of 9.
