Gold (Au) nanoparticles having a Pt-shell layer (Au-Pt) deposited on a conductive support are a promising electrocatalyst for fuel cells for in order to minimize the use of Pt. We describe a facile one-pot method to grow Au-Pt having a 3.8-nm diameter on multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) without using any reducing agent, in which polybenzimidazole was used as the binding sites on the MWNTs to load the Au-Pt.
