Synthesis of Pt dendritic nanocubes with enhanced catalytic properties

Author affiliations

Abstract

Pt dendritic nanocubes (DNCs) were successfully synthesized in oleylamine under a 1 bar H2 atmosphere. The catalytic activity of Pt DNCs was much greater than conventional Pt nanoparticles (NPs) for the methanol electrooxidation reaction. Pt DNCs also showed excellent catalytic performance in the hydrogenation of unsaturated hydrocarbons and nitrobenzene.
