Herein, the pulse temperature is provided during the nucleation period of the nanoparticles to shorten the nucleation time for Pt-based nanoparticle growth. Herein, 3-nm-sized Pt-Ni alloy octahedral catalysts were prepared by pulse-like hydrothermal method. The influence of the pulse on nucleation is demonstrated by comparing the morphology obtained from the conditions of constant temperature and pulse temperature. It has been found that pulse temperature could decrease the nucleation time, and the final morphology of the nanoparticle is different due to the different growth temperatures and times. When used in oxygen reduction reaction, the octahedron Pt-Ni exhibited a 50 mV positive shift of the half-wave potential and the mass-specific activity and area-specific activity are 5 and 7 times higher than that of commercial 40% Pt/C at 0.9 V. Through this way, kinds of multiple alloy compounds could be composed with less time in the future.

In recent years, nanocatalysts with an open structure have been fascinating to use for electrocatalytic reactions due to their high specific area, large void space, and potentially highly active sites. Meanwhile, a porous structure is more beneficial to create a confined environment which would enhance catalytic activity. Herein, we show the porous Pt–Ni octahedral nanoparticles which exhibit abundant Pt–Ni alloy structures with transparent features and tiny Pt–Ni octahedral nanoparticles. By co...

Herein, the catalysts contained metal- and nitrogen-doped carriers were synthesized by a novel and simple method. The synthesized catalysts with different particle size and distribution were controlled by adjusting the ratio of urea and metal salt solution. The morphology, microstructure, and particle distribution of the catalysts were confirmed by transmission electron microscopy and X-ray powder diffraction. The catalytic performance of the catalysts was tested by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and a...

Water splitting provides a clean and renewable way to produce high-purity hydrogen; the current bottlenecks of which are the slow kinetics and poor stability of the available electrocatalysts. Herein, we report a class of open hollow Co–Pt bimetallic nanoclusters embedded in mesoporous N-doped carbon nanoflake arrays grown on flexible carbon cloth (Co–Pt/C NAs, 2.5 wt% Pt), which demonstrate outstanding electrocatalytic activity and ultra-long durability for both hydrogen and oxygen evolution in...

Abstract Developing highly efficient and stable platinum (Pt)-based electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is the most essential step toward the commercialization of fuel cells. Highly accessible reactive surfaces play a key role in boosting ORR for superior fuel cell performance due to the adequate exposure of the active surfaces and the feasible mass transport. Herein, we begin with a brief introduction to the design principles for an effective ORR electrocatalyst, which could pl...

Tungsten (W), as a refractory 5d transition high-valency metal with unique physical and chemical properties, can substantially improve Pt-based alloys, providing a superior electrocatalytic performance for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), which is considered a key cathode process in fuel cell automotives or portable devices. In this study, we developed a graphene-supported Pt–Co–W ternary alloy, by using a facile one-pot polyol co-reduction of the above three metals. In 0.1 M HClO4 solution,...

Abstract The electrodeposition technique for preparing direct methanol fuel cell electrodes has been developed to increase the Pt utilization and lower the Pt loading. The performance of the Pt/C electrode for methanol oxidation reaction (MOR) was optimized by adjusting the electrodeposition parameters such as applied electrical signal types, ratios of t on /t off , deposition temperatures, and electrolyte concentrations, systematically. Furthermore, the effects of two kinds of additives, i.e. p...

Abstract A series of PtCr/C catalysts was prepared by chemical reduction via the seeding/impregnation technique using sodium borohydride (NaBH4) as the reducing agent and then treated at different temperatures in the range of 500–900 °C under a N2 atmosphere for 2 h at ambient pressure. The effect of heat treatment on the catalyst morphology, oxygen reduction reaction activity and stability in a low temperature/pressure proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell was explored. Increasing the heat t...
