Trimetallic PtCuCo hollow nanospheres with a dendritic shell for enhanced electrocatalytic activity toward ethylene glycol electrooxidation

Abstract

In this work, by utilizing galvanic replacement reaction, a simple method for the synthesis of trimetallic PtCuCo hollow nanospheres with a dendritic shell is demonstrated. The compositions of the nanospheres can be well controlled, and the electrocatalytic activity can also be modulated by adjusting their compositions. Electrocatalytic results show that all of the as-prepared trimetallic PtCuCo nanomaterials show better catalytic performance toward ethylene glycol electrooxidation than the commercial catalyst.
