Abstract

The synthesis of Pd@Pt core–shell nanocubes was achieved through a direct seed-mediated growth method. This process represents a simple and cost-effective way to produce core–shell nanocubes. The morphology of the Pd@Pt core–shell nanocubes varied from simple cubic to concave cubic, depending on the reducing agent and the Pt content. The selection of the reducing agent is important because the reduction rate is directly related to the shell growth. The catalytic activity and stability of the Pd@Pt core–shell nanocubes in the methanol oxidation reaction were different for the nanocubes with partial and full Pt shells.
