Sandia Nanotech Goes Platinum
Researchers from the DOE's Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and the University of New Mexico (UNM) have developed a new way of mimicking photosynthetic proteins to manipulate platinum at the nanoscale. The method has the potential to change the metal's properties and benefit emerging technologies. "While we are in the early stages of research, we see the possibility of manipulating the nanoscale structure of platinum so that we can have control over the size, porosity, composition, surface species, solubility, stability, and other functional properties of these metal nanostructures," said John Shelnutt, the SNL scientist leading the research effort.
