Graphene-oxide-supported ultrathin Au nanowires: efficient electrocatalysts for borohydride oxidation

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report stable ultrathin Au nanowires supported on reduced graphene oxide with outstanding electrocatalytic activity for borohydride oxidation. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy measurements showed abnormal inductive behavior, indicative of surface reactivation. DFT calculations indicate that the origin of the high activity stems from the position of the Au d-band center.
