Abstract

We have developed a general ion-exchange method of preparing a composite of low nanometre size carbide particles with controllable size less than 10 nm on carbon foams. The nanoarchitectures of the carbide nanoparticles on carbon foam are used to load Pt nanoparticles as electrocatalysts which show enhanced activity for the oxygen reduction reaction.
