One-pot synthesis of heterostructured Pt–Ru nanocrystals for catalytic formic acid oxidation

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate the synthesis of monodisperse, heterostructured Pt–Ru nanocrystals with a novel core–shell structure by a one-step method. The Pt–Ru nanocrystals show excellent electrocatalytic activity towards formic acid oxidation. Such core–shell structured Pt–Ru nanocrystals are potential candidates as anode catalysts in fuel cells.
