Team work: Mesoporous Pt–Ru alloy particles with uniform sizes are synthesized by controlled chemical reduction with ascorbic acid using mesoporous silica as a hard template. Elemental mapping shows uniform distribution of Pt and Ru particles. The electrochemical activity and stability of the alloys towards methanol oxidation much higher than that of mesoporous Pt and commercial Pt catalyst.
