Synthesis and Characterization of Dendritic Pt Nanoparticles by Using Cationic Surfactant

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Platinum (Pt) is known as one of the most promising

    electrocatalysts, and nanostructured Pt materials have enhanced

    its activity due to their abundant catalytically active sites

    derived from their high surface area. Herein, we synthesize

    fascinating dendritic Pt nanoparticles (DPNs) by a softtemplating

    method using hexadecyltrimethylammonium chloride

    (CTAC) as a pore-forming agent. The dissolved negatively

    charged Pt precursor (PtCl4

    2¹) effectively interact with the

    surfactant. The particle size of the obtained DPNs is around

    20 nm, and the pore walls are composed of Pt nanocrystals. The

    obtained DPNs show good electrocatalytic activity towards

    methanol oxidation reaction (MOR) compared to commercial

    Pt black (PtB), and its stability is also higher than that of PtB
