Recently one-dimensonal (1-D) Pt nanostructures have shown greatly enhanced intrinsic oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) activity (ORR kinetic current normalized to Pt surface area) and/or improved durability relative to conventional supported Pt catalysts. In this study, we report a simple synthetic route to create Pt-covered multiwall carbon nanotubes (Pt… CONTINUE READING
