Shape dependent electrocatalysis

Shape dependent electrocatalysis In this paper we will review the state-of-the-art in the application of shape-controlled metal nanoparticles in Electrocatalysis, especially in reactions of interest in PEMFCs such as O 2 reduction and CO, methanol, ethanol and formic acid electrooxidations. In particular, we will focus our attention on shape-controlled platinum (Pt), gold (Au) and palladium (Pd) nanoparticles. In addition, electrocatalytic applications of shape-controlled Pt-based alloy nanoparticles will be also reviewed. The results reported will highlight how important can be controlling the shape of the nanocatalyst and how effective this parameter may be to improve the activity and thus, develop highly active electrocatalysts. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annual Reports Section "C" (Physical Chemistry) Royal Society of Chemistry

Abstract

In this paper we will review the state-of-the-art in the application of shape-controlled metal nanoparticles in Electrocatalysis, especially in reactions of interest in PEMFCs such as O 2 reduction and CO, methanol, ethanol and formic acid electrooxidations. In particular, we will focus our attention on shape-controlled platinum (Pt), gold (Au) and palladium (Pd) nanoparticles. In addition, electrocatalytic applications of shape-controlled Pt-based alloy nanoparticles will be also reviewed. The results reported will highlight how important can be controlling the shape of the nanocatalyst and how effective this parameter may be to improve the activity and thus, develop highly active electrocatalysts.
