Title: A general method for multimetallic platinum alloy nanowires as highly active and stable oxygen reduction catalysts

Abstract

The production of inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) with precise control over structures has always been a central target in various fields of chemistry and physics because the properties of NPs can be desirably manipulated by their structure. [1-4] There has been an intense search for high-performance noble metal NP catalysts particular for Pt. [5-9] Precious platinum (Pt) NPs are active catalysts for various heterogeneous reactions and show particularly superior performance in both the anodic oxidation reaction and the cathodic ORR in the fuel cells, but their rare content and high cost largely impede the practical application. [10-12] A potential strategy to address this tremendous challenge is alloying Pt NPs with the transition metals (TM). [13-16]
