Synthesis of Platinum-nickel Nanowires and Optimization for Oxygen Reduction Performance Shaun M. Alia1, Bryan S. Pivovar1 1Chemistry and Nanoscience Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory The protocol describes the synthesis and electrochemical testing of platinum-nickel nanowires. Nanowires were synthesized by the galvanic displacement of a nickel nanowire template. Post-synthesis processing, including hydrogen annealing, acid leaching, and oxygen annealing were used to optimize nanowire performance and durability in the oxygen reduction reaction.
