Enhanced catalytic properties from platinum nanodots covered carbon nanotubes for proton-exchange membrane fuel cells. Journal of Power Sources 195 (1) : 155-159.

The integrated Pt/CNT layer is prepared by in situ growth of a CNT layer on carbon paper and subsequent direct sputter-deposition of the Pt catalyst. Both scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) demonstrate that this Pt/CNT layer consists of a highly porous CNT layer covered by well-dispersed Pt nanodots with a narrow size distribution. Compared with conventional gas-diffusion layer assisted electrodes, the CNT-based electrode with a Pt/CNT layer acting as a combined gas-diffusion layer and catalyst layer shows pronounced improvement in polarization tests. A high maximum power density of 595 mW cm-2 is observed for a low Pt loading of 0.04 mg cm-2 at the cathode. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
