Nanostructured materials are showing great promises for energy storage and fuel cell catalysis. A study on the refinement of the synthetic and processing protocols for the control of size and shape of Pt, Au, and AuPt nanoparticles was carried out, with emphasis on understanding the fundamental basis of the control parameters. The preparation of AuPt alloy nanoparticles with different bimetallic composition was investigated. Implications of the results to the design of bifunctional nanoparticle catalysts were discussed. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 228th ACS National Meeting (Philadelphia, PA 8/22-26/2004).
