Rapid synthesis of a PtRu nano-sponge with different surface compositions and performance evaluation for methanol electrooxidation
Journal article, 2015

A rapid strategy to synthesize a highly active PtRu alloy nano-sponge catalyst system for methanol electro-oxidation is presented. The greatly increased Pt utilization, anti-CO poisoning ability and electronic effect resulting from the porous nano-sponge structure could account for the performance improvement.
