Abstract

Newly-designed ternary Pt/PdCu nanoboxes on three-dimensional graphene framework (Pt/PdCu/3DGF) have been fabricated via a dual solvothermal strategy. This structurally well-defined Pt/PdCu/3DGF system possesses an approximately 4-fold improvement in catalytic activity for ethanol oxidation in alkaline media over the commercial 20% Pt/C catalyst as normalized by the total mass of active metals, showing the great potential for direct fuel cell applications.
