Abstract

Platinum and platinum-based materials with high catalytic performance, and chemical and mechanical stability are vital to electronic devices, biomedical science, optics, petroleum, and automotive industries. Because of the limited supply and high cost of platinum, it is highly desirable to develop new effective methodologies which can decrease the platinum loading by increasing its electrocatalytic properties. Depending upon their size, shape, and morphology, platinum materials have shown significant improvement in the surface catalysed chemical transformation pathways in fuel cell technology. Much research is now focused on the manufacturing and engineering of platinum and platinum-based materials which proffer enhanced catalytic efficiency, and offer chemical and mechanical robustness.
