PtAl truncated octahedron nanocrystals for improved formic acid electrooxidation

Author affiliations

Abstract

We successfully obtained truncated octahedron PtAl alloy nanocrystals (∼10 nm) via a facile one-pot strategy. The PtAl nanocrystals exhibited enhanced activity in formic acid electrooxidation compared to commercial Pt/C, which could be ascribed to the large density of defects on the surface as well as the synergy between Pt and Al.
