Decoration of platinum nanoparticles on carbon nano onions

What is it about?

This work records the successful decoration of platinum nanoparticles on pristine carbon nano onions by embracing the green chemistry matrix.

Why is it important?

We have successfully decorated pristine (>98% pure) carbon nano onions that stemmed from catalytic methane cracking with platinum nanoparticles, that augurs promising application of zero emission carbon feedstock to proton exchange membrane fuel cells.
