(L)-Lysine-assisted fabrication of PdxPt1-x/Ni(OH)2 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) hybrids with composition-dependent catalytic properties.


A fast and facile self-assembly method has been developed to deposit 3-5 nm sized PdxPt1-x (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) nanoparticles (NPs) on Ni(OH)2 nanosheets. The biomolecule l-lysine has been used here as the linker to hybridize PdxPt1-x NPs and Ni(OH)2 nanosheets together. The catalytic properties of the obtained PdxPt1-x/Ni(OH)2 hybrids were evaluated by employing… (More)
