PtRu Core-Shell Nanoparticles for Heterogeneous Catalysis

Print Save as PDF


There are known Pt-Ru bimetallics and core shell particles. However University of Maryland researchers have developed a bimetallic that is more efficient at oxidizing hydrogen in CO-rich gas feeds (wherein the CO is present in amounts of 1000 ppm) than any other reported catalyst.

It is believed that this new Pt-Ru catalyst will be used as a superior anode catalyst for hydrogen fuel cells.
