The PEM is mightier than the sword: Structural and compositional changes of trimetallic PtVFe/C catalysts are investigated, alongside their electrochemistry and fuel-cell performance, to provide an insight into the stability of base metals incorporated into the multimetallic systems for use in proton-exchange membrane (PEM) fuel-cell electrocatalysts. The changes thus elucidated correlate with the structure, activity, and stability of the catalysts.
