In the past few decades, Pt-based electrocatalysts have attracted great interests due to their high catalytic performances toward the direct alcohol fuel cell (DAFC). However, the high cost, poor stability, and the scarcity of Pt have markedly hindered their large-scale utilization in commerce. Therefore, enhancing the activity and durability of Pt-based electrocatalysts, reducing the Pt amount and thus the cost of DAFC have become the keys for their practical applications. Read More
