F334 (2014). One-step synthesis and shape-control of CuPd nanowire networks.
The work is part of Fengjiao Yu’s PhD thesis. Investigation of the growth process of CuPd bmetallic nanowires revealed that the nanowires were formed by attachment of spherical particles and strongly influenced by interactions between surface ligands and the alloy. An electrochemical study shows norphology dependent activity in oxygen reduction, which is comparable to that of platinum. [F. J. Yu, W. Z. Zhou, R. M. Bellabarba, R. P.
