Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The synthesis of nearly monodisperse porous Pt nanoparticles through a self-organization process, was illustrated. The synthesis was conducted in diphenyl ether (DPE) using platinum acetylacetone as the precursor and 1, 2-hexadocanediol (HDD) as the reducing agent. The electrochemical measurements were conducted at room temperature using a three-electrode cell on a CHI 760 dual-channel-electrochemical workstation. The results show that the shifts of the peak potentials were within 0.01 V with the increase in temperature.
