|Pt-Based Nanocomposites for the Oxygen Reduction Reaction Tested Under Conventional and More Applied Conditions|
Conventional optimization of fuel cell catalysts is achieved by alloying of Pt nanoparticles with additional components. Here, the concept of nanocomposites consisting of separately immobilized monometallic nanoparticles (Pt, Ir NPs and Pt, Au NPs) is developed.
This work was carried out by Jia Du and coworkers in the group of Prof. Matthias Arenz.
