A paperweight for platinum

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has issued a press release describing a new method for stabilizing platinum nanoparticles on graphene. This work, in a paper recently published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, describes the use of metal oxide nanoparticles to stabilize a fuel cell catalyst on graphene, thereby increasing the expected lifetime and chemical activity of the catalytic material.

The work was done in collaboration with Prof. Ilhan Aksay of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering of Princeton University.
