Recent Advances in Chemical Synthesis Methodology of Inorganic Materials and Theoretical Computation of Metal Nanoparticles/Carbon Interfaces

<p>Using density functional theory (DFT) the interface of metal nanoparticles to cup-stacked carbon nanofibers were modelled and studied for binding interactions and characterization signatures for different crystal facets of mono-metallic Pt and the PtRu alloy. The strongest metalcarbon inter...
