Abstract

Small beginnings: Metal nanoparticle/CNT nanohybrids are synthesized from carbon nanotubes (CNTs) functionalized with an ionic-liquid polymer. The Pt and PtRu nanoparticles with narrow size distribution (average diameter: (1.3+/-0.4) nm for PtRu, (1.9+/-0.5) nm for Pt) are dispersed uniformly on the CNTs (see images) and show good performance in methanol electrooxidation.
