A paperweight for platinum
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has issued a press release describing a new method for stabilizing platinum nanoparticles on graphene. This work, in a paper recently published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, describes the use of metal oxide nanoparticles to stabilize a fuel cell catalyst on graphene, thereby increasing the expected lifetime and chemical activity of the catalytic material.
