Morphology controllable growth of Pt nanoparticles/nanowires on carbon powders and its application as novel electro-catalyst for methanol oxidation.


Pt nanowires (PtNWs) have been controllably synthesized on carbon powders by the reduction of H(2)PtCl(6) with HCOOH. By adjusting the pH value of the solution, PtCl(6)(2-) can be controllable reduced into particles or nanowires. The Pt nanowires are single crystals growing along the <111> direction with a diameter of 3 nm and a length of 10 nm. The… (More)
