Team work: Mesoporous Pt-Ru alloy particles with uniform sizes are synthesized by controlled chemical reduction with ascorbic acid using mesoporous silica as a hard template. Elemental mapping shows uniform distribution of Pt and Ru particles. The electrochemical activity and stability of the alloys towards methanol oxidation much higher than that of… CONTINUE READING
