Nanoscale Co core-Pt shell particles were successfully synthesized based on a successive reduction strategy. The as-prepared core-shell nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, transmission electron microscope, and electrochemical methods. It was found that the catalytic reactivity of Co core-Pt shell/C catalysts toward oxygen reduction was enhanced. It is believed that the prepared Co core-Pt shell/C nanoparticles could be promising for cathode catalysis in proton exchange membrane fuel cells with much reduced Pt content, but significantly increased catalytic activity. © Springer-Verlag 2011.
