Morphology led high dispersion of Pt icosahedral nanocrystals on carbon nanotubes for enhanced electro-catalytic activity and stability

Author affiliations

Abstract

Icosahedra have small contact areas during packing, leading small icosahedral Pt nanoparticles to highly disperse on carbon nanotubes (CNT). The as-synthesized highly monodispersed Pt icosahedra on CNT exhibited superior catalytic activity and structural stability to their Pt nanocube counterparts on CNT towards methanol electro-oxidation.
