Synthesis of Uniform Platinum Nanoparticles Using Glucose as Dispersant
Using glucose as dispersant, well-dispersed and approximate icosahedron platinum nanoparticles (Pt NPs) with average size of about 6 nm were prepared by reducing K2PtCl4 with NaBH4. The obtained Pt NPs were characterized with UV-Vis spectra (UV-Vis), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), contact angle and electrochemical measurements. The obtained Pt NPs have good dispersibility and uniformity, exhibiting excellent electrochemical performance, showing the potential application in electrochemical sensing or fuel cell.
