Abstract [en]

Platinum (Pt) is widely used as battery electrodes, catalysts for chemicals, and catalysts for exhaust gas decomposition in industries. Increasing need and very limited supply of rare Pt is a serious problem in the world. Here, we propose new synthetic way for reducing the use of Pt in a catalytic system by increasing the surface area and modifying the Pt surface structure. Several types of mesoporous Pt films with different pore sizes ranging from 5 to 30 nm are prepared by electrochemical plating in aqueous surfactant solutions. The mesopore walls are composed of connected Pt nanoparticles with around 3 nm in diameter. The Pt atomic crystallinity is coherently extending across over several Pt nanoparticles, showing a large number of atomic steps, which can accelerate methanol oxidation reaction. As a result of a high surface area and unique Pt surface, our mesoporous Pt film exhibits high potentiality as a superior electrocatalyst.
