Nitrogen-doped coatings on carbon nanotubes and their stabilizing effect on Pt nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

A homogeneous coating of nitrogen-doped carbon on carbon nanotubes is performed using ionic liquids. The N-doped material is employed as a support for nanoparticles. Electrochemical degradation behavior is monitored in situ and compared to an unmodified material. The strongly enhanced stability is explained on the basis of a Pt–nitrogen interaction.
