Abstract The anisotropic structure and unique surface properties of one-dimensional (1D) Pt-nanowire (PtNW) make it a promising new type of electrocatalyst for various catalyst applications, especially for fuel cells. However, due to the critical synthesis process, a finely tuning of the synthesis temperature for precisely controlling the morphology and distribution of PtNWs in catalyst electrodes still remains a grand challenge. In this work, we present the temperature-controlled growth of… CONTINUE READING
