  • Direct growth of multigrain platinum nanowires on sulfur-doped graphene (PtNW/SG) is reported. The growth mechanism, including Pt nanoparticle nucleation on SG, followed by nanoparticle attachment with orientation along the <111> direction is highlighted. PtNW/SG demonstrates improved Pt mass and specific activity compared with commercial catalysts toward oxygen reduction, in addition to dramatically improved stability through accelerated durability testing.
