Recent CEC Research Featured on the Cover of Journal of Materials Chemistry

J. Mater. Chem. A, 2013,1, 13443-13453 DOI: 10.1039/C3TA12987JResearch from CEC faculty member Keith Stevenson's group, with graduate student Donald A. Robinson as first author, was recently honored with a feature on the cover of J. Mat. Chem. A.

The featured paper, "Uniform epitaxial growth of Pt on Fe3O4 nanoparticles; synergetic enhancement to Pt activity for the oxygen reduction reaction" presents a synthetic strategy for achieving uniform shell-like epitaxial growth of Pt on Fe3O4 nanoparticles, and potentially a general strategy for depositing platinum on any amine-functionalized surface. The research is part of a larger multi-investigator effort in the CEC to develop hybrid nanomaterials and processes for ultrasensitive sensors. The full article may be accessed at DOI: 10.1039/c3ta12987j.
