In this issue of Matter, Yao et al. report on advanced non-equilibrium high-temperature entropy-controlled synthesis of polyelemental nanoparticles. They achieve extreme mixing of 15 metals, some of them previously immiscible, in the form of a single phase solid solution. The compositionally tunable properties of such atomic scale mixtures within a simple crystal structure makes them highly interesting for the design of new materials, e.g., electrocatalysts. © 2021 Elsevier Inc.
