Interfacial Synthesis of Two-Dimensional Dendritic Platinum Nanoparticles Using Oleic Acid-in-Water Emulsion

Here we propose facile and scalable synthesis of two-dimensional (2D) dendritic platinum nanoparticle at room temperature by exploiting an oil-in-water emulsion. The interfacial synthesis selectively provides platinum nanoparticle with 2D structure in high yield by controlling key reactants such as the amount of oleic acid and the concentration of block copolymer. Electrocatalytic activity of 2D dendritic platinum nanoparticle for oxygen reduction and methanol oxidation reaction is also examined.
