Electrocatalysis: Understanding platinum migration

Nature Energy volume 1, Article number: 16174 (2016) | Download Citation

Nanostructured metallic crystals are already used to catalyse energy conversions, such as those that occur in fuel cells. However, to design improved materials, a deeper understanding of nanocrystal growth is required. Now, details of the mechanisms underpinning the synthesis of highly active, bimetallic Pt–Ni electrocatalysts are elucidated.
