Templating synthesis of ternary PtPdTe nanowires with tunable diameter for methanol electrooxidation†
Ternary PtPdTe nanowires (NWs) with controllable diameter can be synthesized using tellurium nanowires (TeNWs) as templates for methanol electrooxidation. Among the PtPdTe NWs with different diameters, the nanowires with a diameter of 40 nm exhibit the highest electrocatalytic activity. This principle could serve as a guide for future studies in the field of nanowire-based electrocatalysts and offer an additional parameter for optimizing the electrocatalytic performance.
