New Highly Active Carbon-Black-Supported Platinum Nanocluster Catalysts
An infographic highlighting a simple size-selective method for the synthesis of Pt nanocluster catalysts
We would like to share an infographic highlighting the excellent work by Yuichi Negishi et al. on a simple method for the size-selective synthesis of a series of ligand-protected platinum nanoclusters with superior oxygen reduction reactivity! Check out the infographic below to learn more or get the full story from their Nanoscale article.
