Quantitative structural and compositional characterisation of bimetallic fuel-cell catalyst nanoparticles using STEM

Abstract:

Platinum-based catalysts for hydrogen fuel-cell applications have progressed greatly with the addition of a second element in either a mixed-alloy or core-shell structure. Not only do they contain a reduced amount of the more expensive platinum metal but they have been shown to demonstrate a significant improvement in catalytic activity. Further improvement of these systems can only be made by careful investigation of such catalyst panoparticles on an atomic scale. These nanoparticles prov...
