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