Virus-templated Au and Au–Pt core–shell nanowires and their electrocatalytic activities for fuel cell applications

Abstract

A facile synthetic route was developed to make Au nanowires (NWs) from surfactant-mediated bio-mineralization of a genetically engineered M13 phage with specific Au binding peptides. From the selective interaction between Au binding M13 phage and Au ions in aqueous solution, Au NWs with uniform diameter were synthesized at room temperature with yields… (More)
