Description/Abstract

A simple and effective method for the synthesis of nanoparticles is reported based on extreme cathodic polarization of a metal, formation of cation-stabilized metal anions, and their agglomeration (see picture). The improved catalytic activity of these nanoparticles in the oxidation of carbon monoxide as well as methanol is shown using platinum.
